On 18 Mar, 2014 students from the Global Strategic Management class under the direction of Dr. Shahram Taj were provided the opportunity to hear a presentation from Mr. David Broome, an executive with DTE Energy. As part of “Alumni Week” Mr. Broome not only shared his experiences from his impressive list of credentials, but provided the class an in depth look at a real world strategic focus from which to reflect.

I was thoroughly impressed with both the presentation and the presenter as Mr. Broome walked the students through a top level overview of the company’s strategic vision, all the way to the various divisions that make up DTE. I sincerely appreciate the presenter’s willingness to share his knowledge and experiences as well as his ability field some tough questions at the conclusion. The experience was extremely worthwhile, and it is my hope that the college of management will continue to pursue relationships with industry leaders to inspire the next generation of management professionals.
