Case Study

Project Manager/Business Analyst, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Inc.

What skills did you build in the MBA program that you are applying at your current job?

Coming from an engineering/ technical background, I needed to understand and develop a managerial mind-set. The MBA program taught me key skills for being a successful manager – time management and setting priorities, planning for different projects and tasks, setting milestones and metrics for success, communication and people skills.

How has your MBA helped you at work?

The program is perfectly geared to expose students to the academic concepts as well as opportunities to apply it to real life problems via the corporate residency program. The corporate residency helped me solidify my understanding of the course work at school and functioned as my laboratory to test my knowledge. This well-rounded experience made me more confident at work. I was able to take on different challenges and successfully manage them to completion. This helped me gain credibility and trust in order to take on more complex projects.

What can you do today that you couldn’t do before you started your MBA?

After the MBA program, I was better with managing my work by building schedules, planning ahead, and finishing the tasks per expectations. The program also taught me to be a creative thinker and to develop multiple solutions for a single problem. I am more confident professionally and feel comfortable communicating with a variety of people from different functional backgrounds.
