Tech specialist needed to speak the language of business

Anumeha Anumeha, EMBA 2015, had eight years of experience in information technology, but her job responsibilities increasingly brought her into contact with clients, vendors and executives who needed business expertise. She knew it was time to move beyond her technology specialist background. Starting an Executive MBA at the Foster School put her on the path to further career growth.

Most carefully weigh the financial investment, the time commitment, and other opportunity costs against the ROI of personal and professional growth offered by the EMBA experience. We asked three Foster EMBA students to explain how they decided to make a leap forward in their careers.
