I was recognized as a leader within the industry while at St. Jude Medical and Booth. This resulted in Medtronic recruiting me to help grow the current region's business and identify a post-MBA leadership position within the company.

Advice to anyone considering business school

Consider your interactions with the school's students, faculty, and admissions team as they will be representative of your experience at that institution. All prestigious programs will challenge you academically; look for an environment that fits you and your personality. Finally, realize that with most business schools, including Booth, effort is required. You get what you put into it, so get involved!

What surprised you most about Booth?

What surprised me the most is the diversity of the student body. People come from a variety of professional and personal backgrounds, which made classroom discussions more lively and engaging.
