Alumnus Perspective

Anil Asrani, 2009 MBA"I want to capitalize on my passion for science and business, and with the Medical Device nexus that exists here in Minnesota, the MBA/MILI is hands down the best opportunity that I can pursue. With our existing ties to our Industry Council and the passion that Steve Parente brings to MILI, I can only imagine what the future of this degree will bring. It's really assuring to know that large corporations recognize the value that this specialization affords."
