Business Insider recently released an article titled “17 Podcasts That Will Make You Smarter.” This list includes Ira Glass’ wildly popular “This American Life”, “Freakanomics Radio”, based on the New York Times Bestselling book Freakanomics, and “WTF” a podcast about success. Are you interested in getting smarter? Read the rest of the list here and start listening today!

Summertime is a great time to catch up on the sleep you missed during the school year, relax by the pool, or swim in the Great Lakes. Many students forget that summer is also a great time to devote to your professional development. Spending time on professional development doesn’t have to be all resume reviewing and reading stagnant articles. In fact, the Business Library has put together a list of summer reads just for you! Check out our list here and come into the Business Library to check one of these books out from our display case. The Business Library also has a collection of popular books available for checkout. This is located in the center of our library. Our popular collection includes recent books about business topics, both entertaining and educational reads!
Business Insider has also published a list of 20 books to read this summer that will make you smarter about business. Happy reading!
