"The Carlson MBA has enabled me to build a strong set of business skills and provided me with opportunities to gain real experience working as a student consultant."

Your Story

Before coming to Carlson for my MBA I spent several years conducting research in chemistry and biology. I enjoyed the science, but became frustrated when discoveries wouldn't develop into commercial products. A newfound interest in evaluating the commercial potential of new technologies led me to consider an MBA.

Why Carlson?

I knew the Carlson MBA was the best program for me because of the unique opportunities at the Medical Industry Leadership Institute (MILI) and in the Valuation Lab. The Carlson MBA has enabled me to build a strong set of business skills and provided me with opportunities to gain real experience working as a student consultant. These experiences have already proven useful in my internship.
