Through the Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship Certificate, the MBA’s Pioneering Innovation class and various PSU Kickstart Weekends, I learned a ton about entrepreneurship — and was hooked!
I developed strong relationships with the mentors I was matched with as part of this program. I learned a lot about how I prioritize and what mistakes I may be making in my career that I could not see because I am so involved personally.
And it’s corny but true that the students in the Master of Taxation program inspire me. They are amazing — graduating in one year, working full time, being a parent and studying for CPA exams. Some even go through this program with a new baby or a toddler.
My experience with The Portland MBA has provided me with a unique perspective around sustainability in business. A strong sustainability orientation is embedded into the core curriculum of the program in a way that is unparalleled in other MBA programs.
