Last week, UW MBA students met with Diane Shober, Wyoming Office of Tourism executive director.

Shober, a Gillette native, who has been with the tourism office the last 14 years, discussed how her office is the only statewide organization dedicated to growing the tourism economy in Wyoming.

“This was a very impressive group of students,” Shober said in a statement. “Some of the questions posed and ensuing discussion could have been with a group of my peers.”

UW MBA students recently met with UW College of Law graduate Brad McKim, the associate general counsel, Upstream at BP, London, since 2001.
