February 18, 2010 § Leave a comment


On Feb. 5th, MSGL students got the chance to meet and have lunch with Dr. Irwin Jacobs, Qualcomm Inc’s co-founder and long-time CEO. Dr. Jacobs explained how Qualcomm went from a small startup company to a global leader in technology. He addressed the challenges they faced with a growing business, working internationally, and the battle for a global standard for wireless technology. Dr. Jacobs even quipped about his ideas for the future of technology, where your wireless phone will be able to identify anyone you meet – so you never forget a name or a face!


Special thanks goes out to Dr. Jacobs and his staff for their visit. MSGL students appreciated the intimate setting and personal interaction with Dr. Jacobs.
