The greatest skill I learned during my time in the MSEM program was that of empathy. In reality, leadership is 90% being able to connect with people. If you can engage with people in a meaningful way, really understand their perspectives and the way they look at the world, you can build trust and influence that elevates not only your ability to lead, but also the ability of others to collaborate and be effective. Changing my mindset about leadership has really helped me accelerate my career.

In order to come up with products that work in the world, in order to be successful, a lot of companies these days are in high-tech industries. That’s where you see a lot of disruption occurring and so, the intersection of business and technical acumen was something that stood out to me early on [about the MSEM program].

For me, this program helped me to become a stronger technical leader. It gave me the opportunity to build leadership skills alongside other experienced technical folks. Being able to hone these skills in a low stakes environment made applying them in the workplace easier. I've had several promotions during and since the program; MSEM has had a very positive impact on my career.
