Q: What drew you to the Jenkins MBA program? How did the program complement your undergrad studies (or took you in a different direction)?
A. 
The close integration of the program with technical capabilities. My undergrad was in Bioinformatics. With a strong statistical and technical background, I wanted my MBA to leverage these skills for better financial and strategic performance of an organization. 

Q: What are some value points gained from your MBA experience and how are you applying what you’ve learned in your current role?
A: 
The practicum classes are the best highlight of the program. This feature helped make sure that we worked on real time projects with partners from Research Triangle Park.

Q: Advice for prospective students considering the Jenkins MBA program?
A: 
The program’s practicum classes are a great way to ease into the professional setting from school. Do not reserve this opportunity for the last year/semester. Take as many practicum courses as you can. They are the best way to find your passion and interest.
