Why This Program?

“I spent a lot of my career at startups where I worked with engineers on innovation, but my focus was always on business issues. Much of my prior education involved studying history, so I did a lot of learning on the fly. I wanted to go back to school for a formal business education. I came here because of the general management curriculum, which incorporates engineering and scientific approaches to business in an ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation. This was a great fit for me. I didn’t apply anywhere else.”
