We’d love to share more about your professional success with our current and future students – please describe your career path to this point as well as your current profession:
While attending Drury University I worked at Mercy Hospital for seven years. I knew from when I was a kid that I wanted to have a job where I was around people all of the time. My first job after finishing my MBA was with a small company selling commercial building supplies. I enjoyed that job because it allowed me to interact with different people every day. Now I do international sales for a company that is based out of Belgium. The company is Alterface, and they design, fabricate, and install 5D interactive rides and motion theaters. My sales region is the United States, Canada, and South America. I love my current job because it lets me travel when I want, and I get to interact with people all over the world.
How did your experiences in the Breech School of Business MBA prepare you for or enhance your professional career?
I think the Breech School of Business MBA program is an all-around great learning experience. They have created the recipe for each student to be prepared for any job in today’s business world. Knowledgeable professors, practical courses, and small class sizes that allow students to absorb a vast amount of information is what it takes and that is what Drury offers with their MBA program. I think the Mission Statement for Breech School of Business describes the MBA program perfectly. "Preparing ethical leaders for the global business community."
Were there any specific courses that were especially useful to you?
There was not one specific course. I enjoyed all of the classes and I think once you piece each one together they all become especially useful. The program is designed for each class to build upon one another and that was the experience I had.
Do you have any favorite memories of your time in the Breech MBA program?
I have a lot of memories from the Breech MBA program. There was a group of us that consisted of 4-6 guys and we would hang out at least two nights each week. We always tried to think of the next big idea, we never achieved that goal but I know we had a lot of fun trying. The China trip was incredible, I always enjoy traveling abroad and the China trip had excellent presenters at each business we visited. It was also great to experience a completely different culture.
What advice would you offer to a new student beginning the Breech School of Business MBA program?
I would tell a new student to try and get to know each person they are going through the program with. Obviously you will get to know some better than others, but each person you meet will most likely be successful and become a leader for their business and their community.
