“Having graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, I was equipped to handle almost all jobs that were handed to me. I was able to succeed on problem solving abilities alone. What I lacked was an understanding of how the other sides of the business operate and how to look at problems strategically rather than just tactically. With my UK-UofL Executive MBA I gained an understanding of how other parts of a business work so that I have a more well-rounded view.”
