USF International Studies and Politics Professor Stephen Zunes on Trump Protests

USF International Studies and Politics Professor Stephen Zunes on Trump Protests | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"It’s been a week since the election of Donald Trump, and the public displays of disaffection continue. Yet for all the miles marched, candles burned and verses of “Imagine” softly sung, many demonstrators are struggling to come to peace with the purpose of the protests and where they’ll lead, if anywhere."

 

...

 

"Such street demonstrations “serve notice” and provide an emotional release, said Stephen Zunes, a professor of politics and international studies at the University of San Francisco. But moving forward, he said, “People have to think more strategically. They're going to have to dig in for the long term.”

That means forming coalitions, figuring out when to work within the system or when to take to the streets. “Street demo after street demo after street demo doesn't work,” he said."

USF MBA Program Director Frank Fletcher on the High Emphasis on Flexibility at USF

USF MBA Program Director Frank Fletcher on the High Emphasis on Flexibility at USF | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, University of San Francisco student Amy Rosenkrantzdecided to pursue a Master of Business Administration degree but she didn’t want to take time off work to do it. So she looked for a part-time MBAprogram with a high emphasis on flexibility, a trend administrators say is becoming increasing popular."

...

 

“Each student has different goals, needs and backgrounds so we try to tailor the program to suit their needs,” said Frank Fletcher, MBA program director at USF. “We’ve had to build in a lot of career development into the program and change the way we deliver certain aspects recognizing the evolution of our students’ needs.” 

For example, the MBA program at USF still offers core classes like operations and financial management, but students are able to choose a platform, almost like a concentration or major, that allows them to study and create networks more specific to their interests and end goals."
