Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting

Five finance students and Dr. Michael Chiao and Dr. Jun Wang, CSB finance faculty members, traveled to Omaha, Nebraska, to participate in the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting. With tickets donated by MWSU faculty and staff, the group drove to Omaha on the night before the meeting. Two of the students attended the Borsheim shareholders party on Friday night. A rainy Saturday morning did not deter the group which arrived at the Convention Center early to visit the vendor booths and listen for 5+ hours to CEO Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger talk about their business strategies for keeping Berkshire Hathaway a strong company. Interim Dean Carol Roever met the group outside one of the meeting rooms.

Dr. Jun Wang said after the event: “The students, Michael, and I all enjoyed the trip to the 2013 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting. It is an excellent example of applied learning CSB is pursuing. We will continue this event in the years to come.”
