Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: I developed an innovative waste management solution for the Manhattan office of a major multinational technology company. The solution generates useful electric and thermal power from cafeteria waste.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? I recommend that applicants hold at least one full-time job prior to pursuing a graduate business education. It is best if an applicant has experience in a field that is related to their post MBA aspirations.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? The Carlson program offers great opportunities for experiential learning, especially given its location within a city that headquarters so many Fortune 500 companies.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? I would like to lead the sustainability team of a major technology company. Technological progress is essential for the growth and development of our society. In fostering innovation, we are also responsible for preserving our natural resources for the health and enjoyment of future generations. 

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? I would like my peers to remember me as their go-to for sustainability concerns. My peers should feel that they can always count on me to help them in addressing sustainability issues when developing their business ideas.
