I never tire of hearing it. I heard it a few weeks ago from a student who gained a promotion to the marketing department in Sydney and heard it again just then.
An MBA student of mine has his formal meeting tomorrow where he wins a payrise and some better conditions.
Perhaps this happens to all the lecturers. After all, it's the student's success, not mine.
But I do take pride in forcing my students out of their comfort zone and into new things. Collect real data for a market research project, crunch numbers to answer marketing questions, challenge what the textbook says and look deeper.
Or in this case, build a personal blog with your reflections on marketing stuff. Whatever they are. For this guy his bosses noticed it, and he got a new job. It happens about once a month, that I know of, with students I've had. And I'm always delighted to hear it.
After all, the lion and the mouse is real.
