Executive MBA

Why an Executive MBA?

Sure, I was making good on that September 11th promise I made to myself. but also, there’s Tim. Early in my career Tim was doing his MBA at NYU, he said to me “I think an MBA suits you, you should get an MBA”. I was young, and impressionable, and looked up to Tim, and so I did. Thanks, Tim!

During the week-long, experience-driven international residency, I was immersed in complex and thriving Brazilian business environments which accelerated my skills in global competitive issues, crisis management, supply chain challenges and stakeholder leadership.
