Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: My biggest accomplishment in my career is gaining an unparalleled understanding of the customers and customers’ needs to continually improve sales support and service offerings as my roles progressed prior to attending business school.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? I would recommend all business school applicants be very honest with themselves when going through the process of applying. Each individual should prioritize what they are looking for in a school/experience/education (i.e. networking opportunities, ranking, and curriculum) and find institutions that align with those goals. Try not to settle for a school that doesn’t meet your expectations.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? The W. P. Carey School of Business has a culture that promotes the value of an individual in creating a business world that is open to change and diversity of ideas.  This thought process resonated with me, and when paired with the school’s new and innovative Forward Focus curriculum, W. P. Carey stood out over the others.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? At this point in my life, my dream job is a strategic managerial role with a strong customer focus.  The importance of understanding the mission of a business and aligning the entire organization towards a common goal of providing premier customer experiences is a must while I look for the next steps in my career.

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? As I graduate from this program, I would like to be remembered as a trusted source of information and advice, a creative contributor and team leader, and a dedicated individual with the drive to go above and beyond to get the work done.
