During my time in the program, I was a corporate vice president in R&D for an international cosmetics company. The education made me a better manager and executive in real time. Using case studies as well as examples from my classmates, I learned to address a myriad of business challenges. The emphasis on teamwork was a model that I carried with me into the workplace and continue to utilize now to inspire my coworkers and maximize productivity.
The friendships and business relationships that I formed while in school are as valuable as the classroom education and have endured past graduation. Ultimately, my Kellogg education provided me with the knowledge foundation, the network and the courage to pursue my entrepreneurial ambitions.
