Getting my MBA was always a goal of mine; and now that I have it, unexpected doors within my industry are opening up to me with amazing opportunities. 

How did your experiences in the Breech School of Business MBA prepare you for or enhance your professional career?
Even during my MBA course work, I noticed that upper level management and senior personnel at my company were more interested in exposing me to new tasks and challenges.  Each skill set gained within my professional and educational background just increases my chances for greater success.

Were there any specific courses  that were especially useful to you?
I really enjoy implementing ideals and skills from what I learned through my coursework into daily life or professional work.  I would have to say that my accounting and finance classes have been especially useful.

With out a doubt, the trip to Beijing during the International Markets and Globalization course.  The culture experienced and learning that took place during that trip will not be forgotten.
