“I came into the MSMU MBA program with a vague idea of what I wanted to build. More like an idea of an idea. After my 4th semester, however, I came away with a fully formed plan; a plan that I could stand behind, explain and present to my leadership. The MBA program gave me the tools to turn my idea into a reality. More specifically, the entrepreneurship concentration gave me the framework to build a well-thought-out business plan that took into consideration the market landscape, changing economy and other various factors. I came away from the program with not only a better understanding of my business, but of my role and how I can contribute to something great.”
