I've heard many Army Officers get out, get an MBA, and do great things drawing on their experiences in the military. I'm trying to do something a little different. I'm going to earn an MBA, come back to the Army, and do great things for it by drawing on my experiences with the MBA program.
My name is Captain Dan Wagner. I'm an active duty Army Officer and a current student at the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder. I started this program last year right after leaving command at Fort Bliss, Texas. While working on my MBA, I have had a lot of time to reflect on things I did will well and things I failed at. I've also been introduced to multiple new systems and ways of doing things that truly opened my mind. I shared my initial insights with my former Lieutenants to ensure the knowledge could be passed off quickly. However I didn't feel this was good enough. Inspired by various Professional Military Facebook groups, my former Brigade Commander's blog, and empowered by my Digital Marketing class I decided to start my own blog. My hope with this blog is to create a forum where we can share ideas how to make the day to day, extremely unsexy, processes of the Army better and hopefully make many lives a lot less stressful. We all have unique points of view and experiences- I have been very fortunate to have my own and hope they provide some value to you.
