The skills and confidence I developed in launching and executing B Impact PSU, and then in refining and formalizing it post-graduation through my fellowship position, carry over into my consulting work. My involvement in the program greatly increased my professional networks and directly led to some of my consulting jobs.
The MBA classes, instructed by some of the most knowledgeable and inspiring professors in the field, conveyed invaluable lessons. I learned a variety of skills and had the opportunity to gain experiences, some of which were pivotal for my career and personal development.
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!
The staff support is hands down one of the best things about the The Portland MBA, prior to being accepted as well as after becoming enrolled. The opportunities to travel abroad were a key factor for me as well.
