Q: What drew you to the Jenkins MBA program? How did the program complement your undergrad studies (or took you in a different direction)?
 I was drawn to this program for the focus on strategy and entrepreneurial studies.  My undergraduate degree was in Economics, so this provided a more practical foundation for business.

Q: What are some value points gained from your MBA experience and how are you applying what you’ve learned in your current role?
Highest value is critical thinking and the ability to think strategically.  Next highest value is understanding the value of marketing, no matter what your role.

Q: Advice for prospective students considering the Jenkins MBA program?
I found this program to be worthwhile. It is not easy and not everything I learned is immediately applicable to my current role.  The real value for me has been that I now have a broader business-focused background and have learned to think strategically about and actively contribute to the entire organization, not just within my own group.
