Cameron Students Learn From Executives at Celts Breakfast Club

Case studies and lectures are an important part of any MBA degree, but they don’t have to be all of it. Students at University of St. Thomas Cameron School of Business recently got an opportunity for a different kind of learning.

On February 11, at the Link Lee Mansion, students had the opportunity to meet and network with two business leaders for the Celts Breakfast Club. The executives in attendance were Beth Robertson and Daniel Breen. Robertson is the president of both Cockspur, Inc. and of Westview Development, Inc., and is currently on Amegy Bank’s Advisory Board. Breen is the president and CEO of Breen Investors LP.

The group discussed students’ plans for the future and ways for students to capitalize on the opportunities that are presented to them.

One of the students at the breakfast, Dina Alkhamis, an MBA student with a concentration in finance, learned about the strength of perseverance.

“Mrs. Robertson told us ‘any time someone tells you that you can’t do something, that’s another reason to achieve it and prove them wrong’,” Alkhamis said in an interview with Deema Al-Rasheed. “Mr. Breen also advised finding the good in everything– even our temporary failures– and to take risks.”

Events like these are an integral part of life at Cameron School of Business. The next opportunity to meet with and benefit from an executive will be in April when Ernie Cockrell, the chairman of Cockrell Interests, LLC, and the president of The Cockrell Foundation, comes to visit.
