The students attending “From Baruch to the Boardroom,” the Sept. 29 lunch-and-learn with alumnus Joseph A. Ripp (MBA ’81), CEO of Time Inc., hoped to take away advice for their own success, and they weren’t disappointed. Ripp, who runs one of the biggest media companies in the world, offered insights for all career stages, from the entry-level interview to the C-suite. Memorable among his recommendations: “Approach your career as a learning experience. You’ll have a much better career than those who approach it as a job.”
The Baruch event was co-sponsored by the Zicklin Graduate Accounting Society, the largest and most active graduate society on campus; the Baruch chapter of Beta Alpha Psi; and the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity.
