Smart Cities Manager at Silver Spring Networks
Craig Wortmann, clinical professor of entrepreneurship
I moved from a systems and technology analyst at Accenture to a smart cities role at Silver Spring Networks. I diversified my responsibilities in an area I had been angling to get into, and also received an increase in salary.
Three things: 1) The breadth and depth of the network. I’ve met some of
my absolute best friends here. 2) Exposure to new opportunities and
people. Since starting Booth, I’ve considered career paths and
industries that I didn't even know existed before. 3) Continuous
self-development. Booth faculty make it a point to include a mix of
lessons based on developing both hard and soft skills.
Do it! I did, and I haven’t looked back. I recommend reading the book Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work. It helped me identify alternative learning options and validate that an MBA was right for me.
