Warren Buffett has invited CESR to send students to an event in Omaha, Nebraska in March of 2013. Twenty Leeds students will be able to attend this once in a life opportunity that includes visits to two Berkshire Hathaway companies, and a Q & A and lunch with Mr. Buffett himself. Since we are expecting a high demand from Leeds students for these 20 slots, we are designing a competitive application process, the details of which will be announced soon.
CESR was specially awarded this opportunity after sending Mr. Buffett a CESR compass with these words of recognition “You are an outstanding role model for our business students. Just as the compass always provides us with a true north, you have lived your life with a strong moral compass of integrity and honesty. Thank you for providing such a positive example to future business leaders.” We have been told that Mr. Buffet treasures the compass and keeps it on his desk. Even though the waiting list for this event is over 200 schools long, Mr. Buffett instructed his assistant to reach out to CESR personally with this special invitation. We are honored and thrilled to be able to offer this unique opportunity to our Leeds students. Stay tuned for more details on the application process.
