With a background in Accounting, Mike Szalkowski addresses why he chose to pursue an MBA, and how MBA@UNC has contributed to his success investing assets for S Partners, LP.
Working as a high school teacher while pursuing an MBA certainly is not an easy feat, but Kate Schaefer has found the experience to be deeply rewarding.
When Lauren Abraham was offered a management position at TransPerfect Translations International, she had 48 hours to decide whether or not she would accept the offer. While she was eager to move into such a role, the job would require her to uproot her life and move to Hong Kong. Through MBA@UNC, Abraham was able to accept this new opportunity and pursue an MBA from Kenan-Flagler from across the world.
"My experience at MBA@UNC helped me to stretch that out and analyze what’s going on across different teams. Not only am I able to run the talent team and handle our recruitment leads, but I’m also able to contribute ideas to our CEO.” -Jonathan Howard, recent graduate
