My journey at Kellogg started in August 2012 with the intention to learn at one of the best business schools in the world. I was accepted into Georgetown and Maryland’s Smith School of Business, but I picked Kellogg over the others due to the program’s ranking and curriculum.
In retrospect, I am extremely glad I picked Kellogg. Going into the program I wanted to get more background experience and education in core business management, particularly in the operations area. I was pleasantly surprised with the level of talent in the various cohorts at Kellogg. I found myself surrounded with like-minded, success-oriented individuals who are extremely competitive.
The Kellogg EMBA program offers strong frameworks and helps make the analytical decision-making process simpler. It provides great tools to help enhance your vision of leading a successful enterprise. The strong friendships, professional networking opportunities, bonding and the strong alumni network this program offers are the best in the business.
You may have heard of the many health benefits of cross-training, but have you benefitted from cross-training at your place of employment? Many companies today are cross-training their employees to prepare them for future roles by exposing high potential employees to different aspects of the business. Additionally, you can also make a big impact in your industry as you incorporate new innovations and strategies from other functions or across industries.
One of the benefits of the Kellogg Executive MBA experience I was looking for was this cross-training. I worked for a big company for 19 years across various functions: quality, engineering, manufacturing, materials management, research, sales and marketing—both in the US and outside the US, specializing in the emerging markets. The goal was that if ever I was to be a decision maker, I would have the exposure, experience and expertise across these various disciplines and markets.
