How has an MBA from NC State impacted your career?An MBA from NC State enabled me to successfully transition from the military into a career in technology without having to compromise on my level of experience – a common challenge for transitioning military members.  The experiences I had and the relationships I built helped me execute a career change into the industry and role that I wanted, without taking a step backward in my professional development.
