About This Site
This site is maintained by Bruce Thompson, a professor in the Rader School of Business at Milwaukee School of Engineering. For many years I was the program director for the Master of Science in Engineering Management.
I have been at MSOE a little over twenty five years, originally in mechanical engineering but more recently in the business school. Prior to coming to MSOE, I worked almost ten years in environmental affairs at the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co., two years at the GE Missile and Space Division, and two years in the Peace Corps teaching physics and mathematics in Bolivia.
|About This Site|
I received a BA in physics from Amherst College, MS and PhD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
While at MSOE, I have tried to stay involved with other activities. For several years, I ran a software company called Practical Programs, Inc., which made tax software for the early personal computers. Then I owned the Downtown Montessori School and ran the business side of it (it is now a City of Milwaukee charter school). Starting in 1997, I served on the Milwaukee School Board for four years, the last two as president. The latter has led to a continuing interest in k-12 educational issues, which helps explain many of the papers on this site. After a break of six years, I was reelected to the Milwaukee School Board in April of 2007, as the city-wide representative on the board.
I am also involved with several other web sites: two aimed at educational issues and one more for fun:
