"No other school that I looked at provided the same type of in-depth experience working for a big company on a real project."

Your Story

Born and raised in Minnesota. I joined the Army National Guard during high school and spent almost ten years in Military Intelligence. After high school, I took an unconventional route and started working in telecommunications while pursuing my undergraduate degree part-time. Following several years in the workforce, I deployed to Iraq and then shortly after my return, graduated from the University of Minnesota. I currently reside in the northwestern suburbs with my wife and two Dobermans.

Why Carlson?

As a career switcher, I knew that I needed the type of experience that Carlson's Enterprise Program offers. No other school that I looked at provided the same type of in-depth experience working for a big company on a real project. Besides that, the strength of the Carlson Community was something else that drew me to Carlson. Before deciding on Carlson, I was able to sit down with a dozen alumni who were more than happy to share their experiences. It wasn't just recent alumni either; I was able to sit down with senior executives and even CEOs.

Overall Experience as a Carlson MBA Student

My time at Carlson has been amazing. In less than a year I've travelled from NYC to Seattle and met executive leaders at some of the worlds biggest companies (Microsoft, Intel, Pepsico, Nike). I've also had the opportunity to lead a team in the Consulting Enterprise and take on a leadership role as the President of the MBAA (student body). Most important is that I've made some great friendships that will last far after I leave Carlson.
