This experience has been a balancing act. Having a set yet flexible schedule open to occasional changes is highly recommended. Exercise and meditation (sometimes only for five minutes) helped me tremendously in building up the physical and mental energy that I needed to get me through the program successfully. I also made sure to spend time with my family and share with them some of the transformational changes that I was going through. Being in the moment definitely helped with staying focused and organized.

Before Fuqua

I manage a team that is focused on finding quantitive risk solutions that help financial institutions better manage their financial as well as their regulatory risks.

After Fuqua

I eventually see myself leading a medium-size or large organization in an executive capacity. Leadership, general management, and strategy are topics that I am greatly passionate about.

Return on Investment

I came to Fuqua to expand my perspectives and my skillsets. The transformational change that I went through during the program, leading up to the discovery of my true leadership style has been an added bonus. With all that I’ve learned along with the Fuqua network, I feel more ready than ever to go out into the world and make a difference.
