Autumn 2014 B B Brauner learned the importance of students engaging in real-world experiences first-hand through the Executive MBA program. Now, as an alumnus, he says it's even more important to give back and provide those opportunities for other students. "The course gives students diverse industry exposure and a chance to stretch themselves to learn something new," says Brauner. "Professional experience, regardless of the class, is very important because you get to know people in other environments and are exposed to all levels of working professionals." In addition, Brauner says he even learned from and developed lasting connections with the students who worked with Twin City. "These people are connected to current best practices and some of the best professors in the business world, and they're coming to us raw, energized and passionate," says Brauner. "As the host, it's been an incredible experience." x —Matthew Biddle Partner Organizations In addition to Twin City Ambulance, students in Nick Everest's "Consulting Practices" class have worked with a diverse list of companies and nonprofits throughout Western New York.
