Why did you choose to attend The Sustainable Innovation MBA program?
I’ve been searching for an MBA program for quite some time, but was having difficulty finding one I was excited about until I cam across The Sustainable Innovation MBA program. I knew that I wanted to incorporate sustainability components into my career, so this program felt like the perfect fit for me.
What has been your favorite part of the program thus far?
I think the access to amazing people doing inspiring things in their career. It’s been great learning about all the potential routes my career can take.
What are three things someone considering the program should be aware of?
1. Be prepared to work. This program is no joke. 2. Be prepared to have your mind opened to new possibilities of how the world can work. 3. Be comfortable with seeing the same people. In the same building. In the same room. Every day. Hopefully they’re great like ours are.
How has The Sustainable Innovation MBA program benefitted you so far?
It’s opened my eyes to the way business can and should be done. I see even more opportunities to utilize business as a means to change the world, more so than I did when I started the program just a few short months ago.
Vermont is also awesome, so if you’re not familiar, you should make a visit.
