It's About What You Do

  • Business education coursework improves students’ aptitude to focus on WHAT is important
  • With an ability to understand what you do, it can improve your ability of HOW you do things
  • Martin Fichter (EMBA 2014) provides value insights about his experience



How has the program affected my work, my life, and my career? I will say, the first thing that I noticed is it's a liberating effect. You are nose to the ground, working hard, grinding 70 hours a week-- sometimes 80. And you feel really tired.

And then you're being pulled out, and you look at something completely different-- higher level picture-- and you go like, hmm, all that stuff that I did last week, maybe only half of that was relevant. And I could have taken a different approach. So I think I'm getting better at what I'm doing by thinking more about the what I do rather than how I do things.
