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.
As we reflect on the past academic year, we can’t help but to be proud of all that The Portland MBA has accomplished. Tichelle Sorensen, academic director for The Portland MBA said, “This has been a remarkable year. We are so proud of our students, alumni and faculty and all they achieved. This year we have been able to publicly celebrate those achievements, and to build paths to deeper engagement for our community moving forward.”
The case involved providing business solutions for Rainbow Farms, a fictitious upscale grocer facing challenges in adapting to trends in the grocery industry. These trends include the rise of meal kit services, superior technology and personalized shopping experiences.
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.
