Meet the Globals: Shelton Moynahan
"I'm looking for a challenge, somewhere I can make a difference."
Webster Global MBA student Shelton Moynahan makes no excuses for his drive. It is what helped the San Antonio Texas native succeed for years as an entrepreneur in the travel industry before starting the Webster's program last August. And now he will couple it with the Global MBA degree he's awarded this weekend to help a future employer be the best in their industry.

Where Did You Go to High School?
It's the most common question among St. Louisians and for decades, the answer has helped natives strike up conversations with strangers all over the Bi-State. That's why when meeting with Webster's MBA students from China this week, Dean Akande gave them an assignment; use the area's most asked question to network.
"We make fun of ourselves for asking but while you are in the U.S. you need to pull away from your classmates so you can meet and engage as many new people as possible," Dean Akande said. "Asking St. Louis' famous high school question can get those conversations started."
It's all part of the immersion into the U.S. the eight student from China are experiencing while spending the summer in St. Louis and studying operations project management and international finance. The group will return to classes at Webster's China campuses once summer sessions end.
