Dear Lifelong Learners,
On behalf of the faculty, staff and students of the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) College of Business Administration, welcome to our first-rate facility, Mammel Hall. Construction of the building was made possible by the generous donations of Carl and Joyce Mammel and Bill and Ruth Scott.
In Aksarben Village, directly across the street from Mammel Hall, you will find a Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn making your stay easy, comfortable, and affordable. You will find our partners at the Marriott most helpful in meeting your needs during your time here.
During the fall, we welcome Lifelong Learners from around the USA and Canada to join UNO Executive MBAs over three non-consecutive weekends of concentrated study—Friday afternoon and evenings and Saturday morning and afternoons.
Our spring program schedule is designed to accommodate international Lifelong Learners traveling to Omaha to attend the Value Investor Conference and the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. Our condensed course is three (3) consecutive days Monday through Wednesday, immediately preceding the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting weekend.
Among those who have already taken the course are high net worth investors, professional money managers, financial professionals, Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, medical doctors, foundation executives, university administrators, college professors, health care professionals, retired military, and project managers. Their educational background fills a wide spectrum of disciplines from doctoral and master degrees like journalism, history and mechanical engineering from prestigious institutions like Harvard and Oxford.
The mix of Lifelong Learners, professionals already engaged in earning their Executive MBA degrees, and the distinguished lineup of guest speakers brings a unique and valuable learning experience for all involved. With a diverse class roster, everyone becomes an instructor through teamwork, class discussion and student led presentations. The common thread is an intellectual curiosity and a never ending sense of wonder.
Participants travel to Omaha from far and wide, enhancing global perspectives on the course content. Registrants for this unique opportunity offered by UNO's Executive MBA program, hail from all over the U.S.A. as well as all six continents, and over 25 countries including Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mauritius, Moldavia, Netherlands, Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, U.A.E., Uganda, United Kingdom, and Venezuela.
I am looking forward to personally welcoming you to our campus, and learning along with you as together we study the genius of Omaha's most famous resident.
