Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business held the 32nd Annual Management Communication Association's (MCA) conference "Changing Paradigms: Insights and Ethics" April 22-25.
The 20 conference attendees, from major universities and MBA programs including Stanford and Cornell, participated in eight academic sessions covering topics ranging from technology to speaker authenticity.
The keynote speaker was Brian Wansink. Wansink is a professor, author, lecturer and former executive director of the United States Department of Agriculture's Center for Nutritional Policy and Promotion in Washington, D.C.
Attendees also had the opportunity to explore Waco between sessions. They visited the Armstrong Browning Library, where they were treated to music by the Baylor Chamber Singers and the Baylor Early Music Ensemble. Guests also toured the Mayborn Museum, the Waco Mammoth Site and the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum.
"This is the most inspirational MCA conference I've ever attended," Robyn Walker, professor of clinical management communication at Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, said Anne Grinols, assistant dean for faculty development and college initiatives, and Denny Kramer, assistant dean for graduate school enrollment, hosted the event.
