SBT NotaBene 2010
You know @Jack Dorsey as the man who created the microblogging phenomena Twitter. We know him as Webster's Person of the Year, the world's biggest supporter of social media and the entrepreneur that taught us, last September during his visit to our campus, the importance of immediacy, approachability and transparency.
When you think about it, Jack's story is like that of Webster University. It all started with a mission to engage others in a continuous and meaningful way. So this year we're dedicating Notabene 2010 to the power of social media and what it can do to help us connect with our students, alumni, faculty, staff and business constituents around the world. Inside is Jack's feature article on Twitter's transformation as a communication utility. You'll also learn about the birth of the world's best selling app right here at Webster University. You'll be able to Facebook with our alumni, follow the blogs of our Global MBA class and check out our Wiki for faculty research. It's all here in Notabene 2010 and all designed to share the SBT with you, making it the most immediate, transparent and approachable business school in the world.
The Tee is Yours Tiger Woods
What does the future hold for the world's most successful athlete and arguably the best golfer in the history of the game? News out now hints at Tiger Woods returning to the sport as early as this spring. That could put the golfer back on top at the 18th hole. But who will be there to congratulate him?

Webster Takes in World Expo 2010
Students in this year's Commerce in China class will be using the world as their classroom this spring. The unique hybrid course, which combines online instruction with a full week of travel in China, will be attending the World Expo 2010 while in Shanghai.
"Our dates for traveling to China this year are ideal," beams Dr. Debbie Psihountas, chair of the business department and instructor for the 5-week course. "Being able to take in the World Expo while studying the commerce of such a unique country is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Dr. Psihountas has led students through the program for five years using the country as a living classroom to highlight everything from marketing and finance to human resource management and leadership in Asia. With or without a World Expo side trip, the SBT's Commerce in China course has always been ideal for those students who have dreamed of studying abroad but cannot afford to take eight or nine weeks away from home and work.
