I thought going into my MBA it would reinforce things I had already learned, but it also opened up new ways of thinking.
I know that through having my master’s in business administration I’m going to be able to continue to climb up the ladder and continue to guide and lead others to do the work that they do. I believe I’m making a bigger impact by being a leader.
Before, I was stuck in the process. Now I have the larger picture. I am more well-rounded. I would like to move to a management/leadership position and working on my MBA has made me better candidate.
