With bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering, Andrea van den Haak, ’21, spent the first part of her career in technical roles—working on well engineering and operations for Shell and on search and technical infrastructure for Google.

When she decided to pivot to a more business-focused role, she knew she needed an MBA. “I chose to study at Chicago Booth because it has a diverse global cohort who I was able to connect with and leverage their expertise in working in internationalizing products and services in my industry,” says van den Haak, who commuted to the Chicago campus for classes. Van den Haak lives in Austin and landed a role as senior product manager – technical at Amazon Web Services after earning her MBA.

“The ROI that I received from the Chicago Booth EMBA was the network,” she says. “There is no problem that I can’t solve with the Chicago Booth alumni network, personal or business.”
