Robert Lucas '23

MBA For Executives
Area of Focus: Asset Management

“My entire career has been in the public sector, and my background is in public policy and politics. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, countries are increasingly demanding more accountability from their multilateral, global institutions. I knew a foundation in business would help me navigate this change.”

John Ruizo '24

MBA For Executives

“This program is for anyone who wants to refine their skill set and improve their career progression in hopes of making a positive impact in the world. It’s a catalyst to catapult you toward where you want to go, whether that’s pivoting to something new or enhancing your current career trajectory.”

Erika Goldstein ’24

“A lot of what I’m learning overall in the program I’m actually using in my job right now, whether it’s when our manufacturing team talks about six sigma, our VP of marketing challenges us to improve customer satisfaction, or when we’re exploring how to work more efficiently with our regional offices.”
