"I decided to pursue an MBA at Ross with an eye towards pivoting into Management Consulting after graduation. Although I live and work in Columbus, OH, choosing Ross was a no-brainer. It has such a strong pipeline into the consulting industry, and the emphasis on action-based learning - particularly the MAP program - was a huge selling point. I was also really impressed with the cohort model; I'm not aware of any other weekend program that is able to recreate the full-time experience in a weekend setting.
I currently work for Robert Half International in a business development role selling accounting & finance consulting services. Prior to that, I spent 2+ years working as a financial analyst for a boutique commercial lending firm called GemCap, and 2+ years auditing and preparing tax returns as a CPA for Plante & Moran. I also studied business during my undergrad at Ohio State. The Ross MBA will help me build upon the my existing business knowledge and expand my leadership capabilities in a way that propels me forward into the next chapter of my career."
