In this episode of the Language of Business, meet Yoshi Takeda, president of Miki House, America, and hear how COVID-19 provided the perfect opportunity for the Japanese children’s clothing brand to pivot from in-person to online sales. Entrepreneur and full-time MBA student Rodolfo Penna talks about starting two businesses in Boston that draw on his Brazilian roots: a food truck/pop-up restaurant concept and Hire Five, an online marketplace that matches Brazilian and Latin American software developers with American startups. Finally, Questrom admission professionals Dana MacFaun and Liz Wagoner discuss the strong market for Questrom MBA programs—including full-time, part-time, and the new online offering, which is open to business professionals worldwide.
