Coming into the program without a degree made this accomplishment and journey much more meaningful.

“I am a senior communications leader with more than 14 years of experience, known for implementing effective brand marketing in the energy industry. I have expertise in planning, issues management, public engagement, digital, and crisis communications.

Early in the program, I was able to recognize how the learnings from RRU fit my current job. Right away, there were tangible ideas I could bring back to the workplace. Seeing the value helped validate the hours and effort needed to be successful in this program. I see the MBA in Executive Management as a complement to the experience I have in the branding and marketing world, and has helped refine the things I value and look for in building a challenging career.

The blended learning model was a good balance; I enjoyed the on-campus sessions because I was able to completely disconnect from normal life and work, and the online portions provided me the flexibility I needed to keep up with my travel and work schedules.”
