NAU Alumna Rebecca Hickman Speaks in Strategic Management Class

Posted: Thursday, April 4th 2013 at 3:24 PM

Tim Clark, assistant professor of management, had guest speaker Rebecca Hickman (’74 ACC) talk to two sections of his Strategic Management class on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Hickman, an NAU alumn and FCB National Advisory Board member, is the director of investor relations at Pinnacle West Capital Corporation in Phoenix. Her presentations built on the classes’ study of acquisitions to focus on consolidation and diversification in the energy industry.

Students took away valuable information from her visit. They were able to ask her questions about career development to get advice on what path to take and also discussed interview skills, how to add value in the workplace, and the task of considering graduate school.

Hearing from someone who has been in their career field for 26 years was a great way for students to learn more about what it’s like to work in management and help them consider their own careers upon graduation.
