Governor Says Jackson Biz School Idea Should Be Dropped
Cheyenne, Wy – The legislature provided about a million dollars for a working group to develop a business school and executive training center in Jackson. But after several meetings, it looks like the best that can be developed are high profile seminars. Some are questioning whether the money to look at the matter was wasted. When asked about the issue, Governor Dave Freudenthal says the study probably could have been done with a lot less money but he also notes that it led to a long look at the U-W business school in Laramie. Freudenthal says it was noted that the school has a faculty shortage, with enrollment increases.
But the Governor says consultants made it clear that an executive training center or business school won't fly in Jackson. He thinks proponents of the project should move on.
