FIR on Higher Education – Episode 5: An Interview with Forbes CMO Editor Jenny Rooney

What does it take to become a contributor on Forbes’ CMO Network? What does a busy editor look for in a pitch?

Jenny Rooney, the CMO Editor at Forbes, shares insights to these questions on episode 5 of FIR on Higher Education. She talks about how she is working with universities to co-sponsor events and explains her editorial priorities in the months ahead.
