YPSILANTI – Eastern Michigan has been enrolling a record number of new students and graduating more students while adding exciting new academic opportunities such as the Physician Assistant Program. The residence halls are full, the University is working hard to remain affordable, and the new Science Complex is helping in training many students in the sciences and in science education.
Eastern Michigan University President Susan Martin will touch on those topics and more in an interview with host Mark S. Lee on his weekly “Small Talk” program on WXYT-AM 1270 at 7 a.m. on Sunday, August 17.
Lee, an EMU alumnus, hosts the weekly program, which features in-depth discussions with business and education leaders in the metro Detroit area.
Along with President Martin, Sunday’s program will feature Shannon Gruschke, a senior marketing major at Eastern who’s planning a career in social media management.
Gruschke offers a variety of tips to students aspiring to such a career. Among those are deciding what your market is, determining the proper social media platform, and to engage regularly with your clients. And use Linkedin as a way to promote yourself, Gruschke says.
Lee, a business executive, entrepreneur, educator and small business expert, showcases the secrets behind today’s successful start-ups and small business ventures, with a particular focus on Detroit-based and small businesses throughout Michigan. His show features tips focused on addressing business challenges, next-level growth, sustainability and market trends.
Lee is president and CEO, of the LEE Group, and has held senior-level positions with major organizations regionally and nationally. He is a guest lecturer at Eastern Michigan, where he teaches about consumer behavior and marketing strategy.
