About Walton Insights

» Walton Insights HOME

All too often, the research and expertise generated by Walton faculty and other stakeholders didn’t reach the audience it deserved.

Time was the culprit. No matter who you might be - an expert, a student, a businessperson, or someone just interested in the topic – you did not and still do not have the time to read or learn everything.

That’s the problem Walton Insights was created to solve.

Walton Insights takes research and expertise of Walton faculty and other Walton stakeholders and tells you what it means and how you can use it.

Give us ten minutes a week and we bet you will learn something new. We are firm believers that just because you’re too busy to know everything doesn’t mean you can’t learn something.
