The most important lessons from my MBA at the Madden School is the ability to find the balance between business and humanity in every decision I make. The two are not mutually exclusive and those Jesuit lessons have proven to be extremely important in my roles within Human Resources and Labor Relations.
During the summer between my first and second year of my MBA, I earned an internship with General Motors. During the Summer of 2015, I was an HR Business Partner for our Vehicle Sales Service and Marketing teams. At the conclusion of my internship, I was offered a full time job with GM in their rotational HR program (TRACK). Once I completed my MBA, I moved to Detroit, MI to start my career with GM full time. In my brief 2.5 years since I joined GM, I have worked in Talent Acquisition, Labor Relations and am now currently an HR Business Partner for Global Design.
The most important aspect of my MBA is the diversity of the classmates I had. Unlike traditional 4+1 and 3+2 programs, the Madden MBA program had classes made up of experienced professionals and new graduates. This diversity allowed me to bring a sense of confidence when transitioning into the workforce full time. Also, the flexibility of the MBA program allowed me to remain a full time student, while working full time.
The Madden MBA program allowed me to learn from a diverse portfolio of classes from industry experts. It’s been very beneficial when working as a professional that I learned from faculty that incorporated real world, practice experiences into our curriculum.
Earning my MBA has put me into roles and situations that provided flexibility and balance between my professional career and personal life.
This program highlighted the complexity of businesses, but more importantly, it gave me the opportunity to work with individuals from different backgrounds and industries of varying age. The program also didn’t focus solely on studying and memorizing out of a textbook- instead, classes spent time focusing on current events and issues that were relevant to the curriculum.
After completing this program I accepted an Associate Territory Sales Representative position with Grober Nutrition LLC out of Auburn, NY.
This program gives you the resources and support system needed to get ahead in the job market. I had one professor who would start each class promoting numerous job/career opportunities. The ‘community’ is rooting for your success during and after the program.
A territory sales rep position allows me to continue working for an industry that I am passionate about, all while strengthening relationships and working with people. During the job hunt, the MBA gave companies assurance through interviews and on a resume that I could easily adapt and learn their company.
The MBA is a great way to stand out among the rest.
The Madden School of business taught me the many factors that surround business decisions and reinforced the soft leadership skills as well as ethics. My writing skills improved a ton (keep in mind I am an engineer).
After completing the MBA program, I earned a position at Saab Sensis Corporation in Syracuse NY. I will be transitioning to a Product Development/Management role.
The MBA program helped me become well rounded with engineering and business management skills. These skills create greater organizational equity and opens the door for non-engineering opportunities.
I had two goals when I started. Position myself for management and create a skill set that allows me to stay in Syracuse regardless of what happens to my company. Sensis was bought out and became Saab Sensis. They are stable now, but it took few years.
Many of the classes involve case studies and exploring soft skills. These “what if” scenarios help me to think through real life situations outside of work.
