    The most valuable attribute of the MML program was its strong engineering content coupled with a management emphasis. The top three qualities of the program were faculty support, significant resources to leverage, and name recognition that accompanies a top university like RIT.  This program has also been extremely valuable in helping me translate what I learned directly into my professional role. The Capstone project I undertook at Keurig returned over $500,000 on an investment of only $80,000 by innovative enhancements made to our project life cycle.

    My Capstone project provided immediate and long-term savings to Corning that more than covered the cost of attending the program.  The diversity of thought and broad experiences of faculty and students augmented a state-of-the-art curriculum.

    The skills and toolsets learned through the MML program provided me the opportunity to lead a global cross-functional team in pursuit of the first business partnership between Morse Systems Ithaca and Toyota. The topics covered in the program, from current manufacturing practices to product development, enabled me to focus our team’s effort and expertise on addressing Toyota’s needs and concerns. To lead this effort I had to rely heavily on newly acquired project management skills and insights into organizational behavior and team leadership.  I’m proud to say that Toyota awarded their business to us.
