My MBA experience has impacted my outlook on life in general. It has helped me look at things in smaller, more manageable pieces instead of being overwhelmed by the overall goal. It has helped me compartmentalize my efforts and prioritize them. I have also absorbed a great deal of the ‘lean’ mentality in my daily life. being in grad classes while working full time has taught me the value of time, as it has been a scarce commodity.
The combination of my undergrad coursework in computer science with my MBA coursework focusing on IT-related management courses was a very strong fit. It has enabled me to understand both the business aspects and the technical aspects.... This dual knowledge helped me clear up a misunderstanding between a user and a developer/technical person who thought they were on the same page but in fact were not.
