A Working Education
For Nicholas Frunzi, the MBA program paid off at work every day.
Transcript of the video interview:
"My name is Nicholas Frunzi and I’m an MBA graduate. "The course of study was very dynamic and very cross-cutting, I think, through the business world. What was very advantageous for me is the program really was able to cross-cut the work that I have to do on a daily basis. What I am, the position I hold at ESRI is a managing director, so I deal with a lot of the different issues that the MBA covers—finance, accounting, HR issues, planning—a myriad of the things that the program taught us was very applicable immediately at work. "One of the things that was most beneficial was the decision analysis class, management science, where we learned on one Wednesday night about critical path management and on Thursday I was able to go into the office, sit down with a team and turn a 52-day project into a 36-day project just based on what I learned at school the night before. So I had absolute benefits on my day-to-day work. "What the program really offered was a lot of differing views and a lot of chances to get ideas and hear things from how other people are doing business."
