Email me with questions about the Part-time Professional MBA.

Why did you choose Daniels?

I chose the part-time Professional MBA program at Daniels because the program gives me the opportunity to continue my current career path while furthering my education. The focus at Daniels on experiential learning was appealing and has given me the chance to apply the lessons to real-world business problems, both in the classroom and in my current role. Lastly, the PMBA program is an excellent opportunity to network with other working professionals in your cohort and to learn about other industries.

Previous Education

BS in Business Analysis and Management, Bellevue University

Pre-grad school experience

Prior to enrolling in the PMBA program, I had worked as a compliance analyst for four years at a financial services company in Denver and spent six years enlisted in the U.S. Air Force.

Post-grad school goal

Through my experience at Daniels, I have been exposed to new industries and business disciplines, and part of my business school journey is to evaluate whether a career or industry pivot will help me to achieve my goals. After the program, I plan to leverage the skills learned at Daniels and continue my career in the financial services industry in an operational or compliance leadership role.

Hobbies

When I am not at school or working my full-time job, I am exploring Colorado with my wife and daughter — hiking, camping, or skiing — or playing a round of golf. My family and I also have a passion for travel, so we are always dreaming up our next big trip for when we get the chance to get away.
