Why did you decide to come to Drucker? Education Fair at work introduced me to some recruiters who highlighted the rankings for Drucker and showed how the class schedules could fit my work schedule. Also, there were on campus visits and orientations that made me realize that Drucker was offering an experience I should be a part of.

What are your expectations of the MBA program?
To enhance my research abilities with some business savvy via the courses and experience from the MBA at Drucker.

Most memorable experience at Drucker
Drucker seems to really want students to extract as much value from the learning experience that they possibly can. I find it encouraging to see the amount of job fairs, consulting opportunities and internships available for people to really put their skills to the test.  It has been quite an experience thus far.

Experience in the classroom
Currently, I have a Marketing class with Professor Dahan where students have to design video games. I have never done any kind of project like this before; it forces me a very technical and analytical person to get in-touch with my creative side. It’s challenging but a different kind of challenge, this course has been quite memorable so far.


What places do you like to visit in California?
I live in Long Beach, so I pretty much like that area (because of the beach).  I also seem to have a new affinity for Downtown L.A. It has changed quite a bit, and is a new “hang-out” spot because of the cool restaurants and activities available.


Peter Drucker asked, What do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered for an idea that helps people to attain a better quality of life. I have a set of skills that I am very proud of. I enjoy technical processes, do extensive research on complex issues, and work for a non-profit organization that provides healthcare to low-income families. With this kind of knowledge and experience, I want to be remembered for an innovation or idea that combines these things and helps people that need help.
