Nina Sharma (EMBA 2019)

Sharma, who was named to the Denver Business Journal’s 2019 “40 Under 40” list, pursued the Daniels Executive MBA program in conjunction with her full-time role as managing director of the University of Denver’s Project X-ITE.

“I knew I needed the hard skills of business school to round out my experience and perspective,” she said. “I’ve worked in the nonprofit and academic sectors for 17 years, but I’ve also worked with dozens of entrepreneurs in that time, and eventually became one myself. I wanted the business acumen to help me guide my own company and provide sound mentorship and advice to the students I work with.”
