Elsa Jacobson
“Because the MBA team environment doesn’t have hierarchy the way a workplace does, it manufactures an environment that forces better compromise and collaboration. The flexibility it takes to succeed in a business school team is a valuable skill that I’m working hard to apply at work too. Through our coursework, I’ve thought a lot about how I show up at work and how I lead.”
Elsa Jacobson (MBA ’20)
Senior Director, UW Health
““Being on a team helps. You can help each other. One person might be particularly strong in economics for instance. They can help guide an econ-focused project. We all have our strengths, and I think it works well as a team cohort.”
Kristine Zickuhr (MBA ’22)
Assistant Director for Administration at Chazen Museum of Art
