Elsa Jacobson
“My career coach has helped me reflect on what I’m learning in class and apply it in my own leadership role. With a talented coach not affiliated with my own organization, I can share freely with her and can use her outside vantage point to make better decisions in my work and career.”
Elsa Jacobson (MBA ’20)
Jim Blank
“The program staff helped me with my résumé, interviewing skills, and overall career planning. There are always staff available to answer questions about the program. If they don’t have an answer immediately, they find it for you. They are always advocating on our behalf.”
