WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO AS PRESIDENT OF THE ALUMNI BOARD?
Giving back to a community of which I am proud to be a member. I am also looking forward to being a conduit for connecting some of our incredibly talented alumni to each other for their future endeavors.
We have so many alumni across various platforms in business leading some of the world’s top companies.
My sincere hope is that our alumni really connect with each other and give back to the Fox EMBA community to foster great business synergies and share their experiences. If you have a desire to start a business, partner with another organization, find experienced professionals for open positions, or transition to a different business space, this alumni base should operate as a resource. Meeting some of our alumni and learning about their backgrounds has been an amazing experience.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST MEMORABLE EMBA EXPERIENCE?
The closing ceremony at the completion on our final class day. This was a special time because it caused me to reflect on the entire 16-month experience with such an amazing cohort! This valuable time we spent working together, passionately disagreeing with each other, challenging each other’s theories, as well as our Moroccan immersion with the incredible MB, is an experience I will always cherish.
The members of our 2015 cohort have been a tremendous resource for me regardless of industry. I have immediate access to a network of incredible executives that I can call on for advice or feedback.
