Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland, OH
Why did you decide to attend Saunders College of Business at RIT?
I choose RIT for my MBA after obtaining a marketing undergraduate degree from RIT because Saunders has professors that live to make sure their student thrive in the real world. The technological advantages presented to me through my entire college education set me up to exceed what was expected by my employers and give me the tools to continue learning on my own.
In what ways has Saunders/RIT prepared you for the job market?
My job, and the organization as a whole, thrives in a start-up-type atmosphere, so the idea creation, development, and management skills I learned at Saunders, along with multiple software programs to organize and manage large amounts of data, really prepared me for my current position. Much of what I learned during my MBA prepared me beyond what was expected by my employer, ultimately setting me up for great success.
What do you feel is the most distinctive advantage gained from your Saunders Experience?
The technological advantage. The experience I gained from being taught and having access to software, specifically Tableau Software, was what ultimately sealed my opportunity to work for this organization.
