BRATTLEBORO, VT - Charlie Nagelschmidt of Waitsfield, Vermont, earned a Master of Science in Internet Strategy Management from The Persons School of Marlboro College.
A 20-year veteran of the information technology field, Nagelschmidt served as the vice president of information technology for several multinational corporations based in Boston before moving to Vermont in 1997. Currently, he works as a consulting manager for Competitive Computing in Colchester, Vermont, and is a founding member of iMarch Partners, an Internet consulting firm formed at Marlboro College and currently based in Waitsfield, Vermont.
Nagelschmidt was among 77 students receiving master's degrees in August 2001 from the Persons School's three programs: 40 for the Master of Science in Internet Strategy Management, 23 for the Master of Internet Engineering, and 14 for the Master of Arts in Teaching with Internet Strategies.
To graduate from one of the Persons School's programs, students must complete a Capstone project, the equivalent of a traditional master's thesis. A Capstone project demonstrates the mastery of the interdisciplinary curriculum and the implementation of an innovative concept for the use of the Internet in an organizational or educational setting.
Nagelschmidt's Capstone was entitled, "Eurosocks." He and his teammates created and implemented an eBusiness strategy for Eurosocks North America, a company founded in February 2001 that markets and distributes patented, Italian-manufactured athletic socks to the North American market.
Established in 1997, the Persons School of Marlboro College has become nationally known for preparing individuals for the multidisciplinary demands of the online profession, and for producing leaders who understand the latest technology and the fundamental challenges that occur when schools and businesses go online.
