Vocabulary for MBA

This work in process contains all sorts of expressions, from formal to slang, gathered from all kinds
of speakers, from Dean Sullivan to students to businesspeople. Most quotes are from real situations here at
the Business School, and I do not necessarily endorse the views of the speaker. Thanks to Mike Allen,
MBA ’01, and Ernesto Oechler, MBA '00, for reviewing, organizing, and editing this version, and to Mike
for some of the entries. Please e-mail comments, corrections, and ideas to phraseman@unc.edu.
