Class of 2022

An undergraduate degree in chemical engineering and a master’s degree in supply chain management have served me well in various operations and engineering roles within a large CPG company. However, as I started learning more about factors impacting my organization’s strategic direction and focus, I became extremely interested in gaining an MBA to connect all the dots and play a key role in setting direction for the business.

The Ross MBA. After evaluating several top MBA programs in the Midwest, I felt a pull to Ross because of the collaborative culture and focus on socially-conscious leadership. I wanted to keep progressing in my career and loved the idea of applying ideas from the classroom immediately in my work, so the weekend MBA format was the best fit for me. So far, I’ve learned as much in the classroom as I have from my peers. I have access to world-renown faculty and brilliant peers at Ross- it’s already turning out to be a formative experience!

After Ross, I hope to pursue general management roles within the CPG industry. I’m happy to help prospective students learn more about Ross and share my experience. Go Blue!
