PIGOTT BUILDING – Bystanders stood in awe after hearing Julius Mandel, a student in Albers School of Business, use the word “synergize” seven distinct times in a single conversation. Short bursts of applause were heard with each successive use of the word.
“I didn’t think I could do it,” remarked Mandel in an interview. “But in the end, I was able to synergize with my business peers to get the job done.”
Shortly after being hoisted and carried out of the Pigott Building, Mandel was approached by Warren Buffett and offered a job right then and there. Mandel is reportedly halfway through writing his upcoming novel, Business Bro: How to Synergize Your Way to the Top.
