Learn from the Brightest and Best
Executive in Residence Course

The MBA program at Kansas Wesleyan University welcomed M. Olaf Frandsen, the editor and publisher of the Salina Journal, to lead its 2017 Executive-in-Residence program.Olaf Frandsen, executive in residence

Prior to Salina, Frandsen spent 30 years with the multimedia company Freedom Communications Inc., comprised of 28 daily newspapers, 10 weekly papers and eight broadcast television stations. With Freedom, he was an editor, publisher and, ultimately, regional vice president where he oversaw all operations of 10 of the company’s newspapers.

Frandsen, who teaches Organizational Management in the KWU M.B.A. program, also was an adjunct professor and distinguished lecturer at the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley, where he taught Media Law & Ethics.

Earlier in his career, as the editor of a West Texas newspaper, Frandsen led a newsroom team that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in news photography in 1988 for coverage of an 18-month-old girl, then known as Baby Jessica, who was trapped underground in an open water well pipe for three days.

He has an undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Arizona, and an M.B.A. from the University of Phoenix. He is certified by the Stanford University Graduate School of Business in Leading Organizational Change.
