I am very happy to have my OPER 576 classmate, David Whitman, share his experiences in Albers MBA program. David is a Certification Business Manager with Greenpoint Technologies which provides interior solutions for Boeing aircraft, including VIP interior completions for private individuals, corporations and heads-of-state. As a preferred OEM supplier to the Boeing Company, Greenpoint Technologies has designed and delivered specialty interior systems and modifications for nearly every Boeing commercial model. In addition, David has two cute daughters and lives with his family in Bothell.
“My MBA experience has been fabulous. The professors have been top rate and the small class size has been great compared to my undergraduate studies at a large local state university. The curriculum is well structured and I have focused on management classes. The MBA 510 initiation was a good start for the MBA program and I still run into many of my classmates from that quarter (although many have graduated). The community service emphasis in the curriculum has provided me a feeling of well being and pride of giving back to the community.
The MBA program has been helpful in bringing practical and applicable ideas to my workplace. My company has plenty of senior directors and managers that have received their MBAs and discussing leadership and management ideas has been always beneficial to our growing company.
I like the fact that one can start their MBA program any quarter. This flexibility allowed me to start my studies right away instead of, in my case, waiting another nine months to start different MBA programs that only start in fall quarter.
As a functional manager I have used many of the leadership and management skills, readings, and case studies for managing my staff. Having the theoretical and research-based knowledge has been invaluable for me to be a better manager.
I decided on Seattle University due to my wife’s enjoyment with her MBA program (1997 SU graduate) and because of the flexibility in the starting point any quarter. I made a wise decision and have thoroughly enjoyed my learning experience.”
