Class of 2021

After working as a materials engineer for several years in the automotive industry, I was excited to accept a position on a small, entrepreneurial team bringing material technology to new markets. This new role exposed me to the challenges of starting a new business as well as to new responsibilities related to sales, finance and market analysis. This exposure ignited a strong desire to learn about the inner workings of business and finance and the rest, as they say, is history.

Ross was, without question, my top choice for completing my MBA for three key reasons. First, the excellent academic reputation ensured I would be well prepared to continue my transition from a technical role to a business-related role. Second, the location is relatively close to home so I could keep my job while easily attending the action-based learning classes as well as the many events and resources offered by Ross. Lastly, and probably most importantly, I was committed after getting a feel for the amazing Ross culture that is not only high achieving but also collaborative and socially conscious.
