How to Instantly Expand your Network
Part-Time MBA alum Tim Huebsch describes how joining the Carlson School community enriched his career, his knowledge, and his professional network
Tim Huebsch, ’07 MBA, crosses paths with fellow Carlson School alums at virtually every company in the Twin Cities. Through the part-time MBA program, this self-proclaimed “dot-connector” built a powerful network that he’s continued to leverage to build his career.
“It's pretty amazing, as you're out in the community, the number of people you run into who've had that MBA experience from Carlson,” says Huebsch, General Mills global business solutions manager. “Alumni are in all levels of leadership within companies here in the Twin Cities—it is a really strong network.”
And that network stretches far beyond the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro. With more than 50,000 alumni in 105 countries, the Carlson School’s footprint spans the globe. These international leaders lend their expertise to develop the next generation of students: alumni mentor students, recruit graduates, speak in classrooms, host classes abroad, and more.
The global alumni footprint plus the international reputation of the Carlson School add up to a world of career opportunities for Carlson MBA students.
“When I looked at business schools, I said to myself ‘if there's ever any chance that I might leave the Twin Cities, what school is going to have the most wide appeal outside of here? It became an easy choice to choose Carlson," says Huebsch.
