BTN LiveBIG: Iowa MBA students help organizations and gain valuable experience

Students in the Tippie College of Business MBA program at the University of Iowa are guaranteed one thing in during the 21-month program: plenty of real-world experience. Much of that is due to the school’s Business Solutions Center coursework, required for every student pursuing an MBA. This program matches graduate students with companies as consultants-in-training. “Think of it as project-based courses,” said Mark Winkler, the center’s director. “They’re out in the world solving problems. But the difference is they have someone in the business world helping them out.” Here’s how it works: All first-year students in the program are put

Dienhart's rapid reaction: Cincinnati comes back to beat Purdue in OT

A.J. Hammons scored a team-high 17 points, but it wasn’t enough as Cincinnati snapped the Boilermakers’ 14-game winning streak in NCAA Tournament openers with a 66-65 win Thursday night in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Here’s a look at BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart’s rapid reaction. The star: A.J. Hammons played well, scoring 17 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and a block. The junior hit 7-of-10 shots. At that rate, he should have been fed the ball more often. He only shot four free throws. Instead, Purdue time and again curiously tossed up 3-pointers despite showing no

Ohio State freshman D’Angelo Russell is one of the most exciting players in college basketball. The Buckeyes’ fantastic freshman put on a show again on Thursday, this time on the biggest stage of his young, college basketball career. Russell scored a game-high 28 points in the Buckeyes’ 75-72 win over VCU, which puts him No. 1 on Ohio State’s all-time freshman scoring list. It also marked the third highest point total by a Big Ten freshman in NCAA Tournament history. But as good as Russell’s scoring numbers were on Thursday, it was a play with just over a minute remaining

Check out this video above, which shows the Badgers going go kart racing to the theme of the popular Nintendo game, Mario Kart.
