Leadership Storytelling Workshop - Spring 2019

On Thursday, March 13th, students from Dr. Anna Kayes’ Organizational Leadership class and Ryan Clark’s Theatre Program participated in a “Leadership Storytelling” workshop where three theatre students posed as Amazon executives while business students networked and shared their personal stories of leadership with them.

After the networking session, theatre students Alex Gore, Adam Nelson, and Norman Greenwell gave feedback to the business students on how well they communicated their stories of leadership.

This is the second year Dr. Kayes and Ryan Clark have collaborated to create this unique and creative opportunity for their students. To learn more about Leadership Storytelling, read the post about how it all began.

Hodges, Austin M. Howard, Caitlynn N. James, Nickolas J.

Business Administration Senior Kylie Shade spent last summer interning for Maryland state government as part of the Governor’s Summer Internship Program (GSIP). Kylie was placed at the Office of Small Business Regulatory Assistance within the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.

“I learned about how state government works, how a professional office runs, and how much regulations affect small businesses. Over the course of the summer, groups of four developed policy papers based on pressing Maryland issues. From that, I learned how to write a policy paper and present it to the governor’s staff.” says Kylie.

She learned about the Governor’s Summer Internship Program through a friend who works for the state of Maryland. The GSIP is part of the Maryland Public Service Scholars Program which provides “students across Maryland the opportunity to develop as future leaders in Maryland’s public and social sectors.”

Kylie describes a typical week during the internship as shadowing coworkers, attending outreach events, and becoming familiar with the Executive Order that created the unit that she worked in. “Everyone had different experiences,” says Kylie “although, no fellow was ever the coffee person.” On Fridays, GSIP fellows take field trips; Kylie visited the State House in Annapolis and the White House in Washington D.C.

Applications for the GSIP are accepted in the spring for the following summer. The application process includes an application form, one essay, four short answer responses, a resume, unofficial transcripts, and two references. More about the application process, eligibility, and requirements can be found on the GSIP website.

After her internship, Kylie was offered a part time job at the Office of Small Business Regulatory Assistance and works there now. “Other fellows were also offered positions too” says Kyle, “This internship is also an amazing resume-booster. Employers, especially in government are impressed with a student who had this experience. I have had multiple job offers since completing this program.”

When asked why she thinks other Stevenson students should apply for this internship, Kylie says “Networking! I cannot emphasize this aspect enough! I have met so many wonderful people, that I still stay in touch with, through this internship.”

Congrats Kylie! And thank you for sharing your experience!

Weinman Cup 2019

On Friday March 1, BSOBL students Alex Kapusta and Ryan Siegal, under the guidance of Dr. Mark Arvisais, placed second in the Weinman Cup competition at Towson University against competitors from Kutztown University, Morgan State University, Shippensburg University and Towson University.

The Weinman Cup is a rigorous competition open to select undergrad business schools and requires teams to solve a difficult and complex supply chain problem. The competition was created with the help of the Toby and Melvin Weinman Foundation, Inc., to provide students the opportunity to practice their business skills and interact with local business leaders.

This year’s competition case problem was a complex supply chain problem featuring Penguin Random House, LLC.
