Once I decided to pursue the The Portland MBA and committed myself to the process, I’ve been amazed at how much I’ve been able to change in my own life simply by deciding that it was time to make a change. Understanding how I was selling myself short has inspired me to do a lot more than I have before.
It only takes about 20 months.
At the starting line, 20 months feels like a marathon. At the finish line, it feels like a sprint. As my farewell to the School of Business, I have some parting thoughts to share:
A few months ago, I began the daunting process of job searching, and now I’m excited to announce my search is over. And here’s the thing: This opportunity didn’t come from a job board or an online application. It all started with an informational interview.
The decision to get my MBA was (what I thought would be) a natural progression from accounting to finance. I chose The Portland MBA program for two reasons: 1) its connection to the city I loved; and 2) its commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
