"The MBA has helped me already in my career. A couple of months ago I received a promotion at work, it was a role that I was angling for for such a long time and I think the reason that I was successful in getting that role was because I was able to demonstrate that I was committed to study and learning and had that discipline around continuously challenging myself. The MBA absolutely opened up those doors for me. I think moving forward, what the MBA will give me is that sense of courage and resilience and confidence in my ability to do anything, whether it be in my professional career or my personal life. I think that the MBA may well open other doors for me, being in education for a long time; but there are lots of things that we do in education that are relevant to other business and that may broaden the opportunities that I’ll have in my career."
