Fast Company: Can Apple's Angela Ahrendts Spark A Retail Revolution?
Three years ago, she gave the commencement address at her alma mater, Ball State University. It was entitled "From the Heart," and it focused on the "Midwestern core values" that have "guided every aspect of my professional career." From her father, she learned humility: "My dad would always say, 'When you look at a photo, do you see yourself  last?'" From her mother, excellence: "Whenever I would ask if something was okay or fine, she would consistently reply, 'I didn't raise you to be fine.'" From both, the need "to be aware and sensitive of my impact on others."

I next visited the website of Ball State University. I was interested in Ball State because it claims to offer "…the only PR master’s program certified by the Public Relations Society of America." I’m a PR guy, so that got my attention. I’m pleased to say that BSU’s website experience delivered on its "Education Redefined" tagline. In fact, the school tells its story through the eyes of a successful graduate, Colleen Bormann (who redefined her career path thanks to the Ball State education). BSU didn’t have to sell me on its cost/benefit ratio. One of its graduates did. That’s no b.s., just smart marketing.
