Why This Program?

I had been interested in MBA programs for several years, but didn’t have time for school because I was helping to grow a startup and later taking on a new position at Amazon Robotics. However, as I began managing a bigger global team, I realized that a business education was necessary to build on my skills to get to the next level in my career. I came to this program because of the world-renowned reputations of MIT and MIT Sloan. I also appreciated the Action Learning aspect, which would allow me to apply what I learn in class immediately in my job. I knew this would be a worthwhile investment in myself and it would give me the tools to think about things in a different way.
