Hump day came quick – gotta love these four-day weeks.

In today’s MBA news: rule the world with an MBA, become even more of an MBA at Berkeley Haas, and a new Dean for the Leeds School of Business:

MBAs are bringing professionalism management skills the party to the global political world. Europe, Asia, and the U.S. have seen a rise of political leaders with a business education. Soon we’ll take over everything! MWAH HA HA. [Financial Times]

Following its mantra, “Student Always,” Berkeley Haas is offering its MBA alums an additional two-day executive training anytime within 5 years of graduation. For the fine Bay Area weather and a chance to sharpen our skills, we’re there with bells on! [International Business Times]

The University of Colorado Leeds School of Business names David Ikenberry to its deanship. He joins the pretty long list of new deans that joined schools such as the Kellogg School of Management, Harvard Business School, Chicago Booth in 2010. By the way, for those of you studying for the GMAT [or who recently took it], please appreciate the use of “such as” instead of “like” in the previous sentence. Thank you. [Denver Business Journal]
