Q: What skills are you building in the D'Amore-McKim MIM program that you will use in your future career?
A: The MIM program gives you the opportunity to spend time in two countries, giving you the opportunity to adapt to different cultures, education and life styles, as well as the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. As business becomes more global, it will be imperative for workers to have the skills to adapt and thrive in environments that are unfamiliar. In regards to the classes themselves, we are engaging in assignments that are real-world applicable. For example, in Becoming a Global Leader and Competitive Advantage through Global Innovation we have discussed the difficulties of managing people and innovation processes when your firm crosses several timezones and cultures.
Q: What would you say to a colleague considering enrolling in the MIM program?
A: I would absolutely recommend it! There are not many one-year masters programs that allow you to study in two countries, which I see as the biggest benefit.
Q: Why did you choose the D'Amore-McKim MIM program?
A: I chose the MIM program because I completed the Dual International Business Degree between Northeastern and ICADE, and am familiar with the IPBS schools. Familiarity with the schools and their styles of education, experiencing life in another country and receiving another degree from Northeastern were all major factors in my decision.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years?
A: I would like to be involved with international business development, helping firms continue or begin their expansion overseas.
