Why This Program?

As a scientist, I had all the tools I needed to solve technical problems. However, to solve business problems, I needed to fill in knowledge gaps and acquire more tools. I wanted an MBA to build my knowledge of finance and economics, add to my arsenal of competitive strategies, and further grow my leadership and negotiation skills. I came to MIT because of its strong reputation as a premier engineering and science school that promotes innovation. The MIT Sloan EMBA program is a great environment for me to learn how to create new innovation paradigms that will allow well-established, successful companies to bring truly cutting-edge products to the market sooner.
