Zicklin Students Travel to Omaha to Meet with Warren Buffett

Zicklin students and staff meet with BRK Chairman and CEO Warren Buffet

On March 31, a delegation of 20 Zicklin School of Business students—11 MBA students and 9 undergraduate honors students—traveled to Omaha, Nebraska, to visit Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) headquarters and subsidiaries. Accompanying the student group were Paquita Davis-Friday, Executive Director of Graduate Programs, and Tara Sinclair, Program Advisor for the Zicklin Undergraduate Honors Program.

The highlight of the students’ whirlwind, one-day tour was the opportunity to engage BRK chairman and CEO Warren Buffett, first during the official two-hour Q&A session and later at an informal steakhouse lunch. Baruch College was one of seven universities selected to participate in the April 1 visit.

After lunch, the student delegation gave Buffett, a self-proclaimed admirer of College namesake Bernard Baruch, a 3D plaque fabricated in the College’s Maker Hub. The plaque read, “’I get the facts, I study them patiently, I apply imagination.'—Bernard Baruch.”
