I’m earning my MBA to improve my strategic thinking and increase my business acumen. The Wisconsin Executive MBA Program provides a strong academic foundation to help experienced professionals solve complex problems in a highly dynamic business environment. I want to expand my abilities in identifying opportunities, assessing and mitigating business risk, and making informed decisions to move forward quickly and execute effectively.
In the cross-functional environment in which I work today, I need an MBA to further my skills in managing programs and supply chains. My goal is to work directly with the executive leadership team in driving organizational missions and developing strategies. I want to apply myself to solve the most pressing needs of the organization.
I am not the same leader I was when I started the program. I’ve become more confident and feel prepared for any business challenge that arises. The program is helping me see the big picture, better understand business data, and select the most relevant drivers for my organization’s growth.
My peers are an essential part of the MBA experience. Their diverse experiences and perspectives have inspired me and pushed me to think about business issues in new and different ways. They are a group of highly talented, high-performing professionals from many industries, and they are my support and motivation.
If you’re looking to enhance your executive career, the Wisconsin Executive MBA Program is the way to go. With relatively small class sizes, and a close-knit group of students, you get a personal experience and a lot of interaction with executive peers and professors. You also can connect with students in other Wisconsin School of Business MBA programs, so there is an opportunity to reach out and network with Business Badgers across a wide range of industries and backgrounds. And after you graduate, there is an enormous community of alumni all over the world that can support you.
