"Not only does Carslon provide the opportunity to address your educational needs but the opportunity to immediately apply your new skills through the Enterprise experience."

Your Story

After graduating from Indiana University I spent the next six years of my career selling and marketing medical devices. I enjoyed my stent in the health care space but over time I realized that I wanted to learn some new skills and explore alternative careers. This realization probably isn't much different from yours. I decided the only way to address my knowledge gaps while exploring new opportunities was to head back to business school. I can honestly say that this is one the best decisions I've ever made and I'm sure it will be one of yours as well.

Why Carlson?

When I was looking at business schools, I wanted to find a top ranked program that was surrounded by strong local businesses and one that would provide an experiential component. After months of consideration the only program that fit this description was Carlson. Not only does Carslon provide the opportunity to address your educational needs but the opportunity to immediately apply your new skills through the Enterprise experience.

Living in the Twin Cities

As a Chicago native it was difficult to move to a smaller city, however Minneapolis has truly become my home away from home. It may sound cliché but Minneapolis does have something for everyone. I have enjoyed catching concerts at First Avenue, eating my way through the food scene and watching one of our four professional teams. This city is also incredibly active, not even the cold weather will slow it down. Some say, that it's hard to move here but it's even harder to leave and as an outsider I can attest. It is a wonderful place to discover new interests and hobbies...just don't forget to buy a few jackets, the warm kind.
