Female entrepreneurs make up more than 30% of all enterprises in the United States, and the MBA@UNC blog celebrates that fact with its recently published list of 33 female founders forging their own path.
Each of the women featured has an MBA degree, and has experienced first-hand how going to business school transformed their career by giving them the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful. I’m honored to share a place on this list among such bold and innovative women who have made their mark across a variety of industries, from health to technology, media to e-commerce.
Going through an MBA program helped me to think outside of the box. It completely opened my mind with regards to what I believed I was able to accomplish. I gained the broad range of skills needed to work on strategy, marketing, management and accounting issues, and I developed a network that I have tapped into and relied on every step of the way.
Most importantly, the MBA brought about a mind-shift which allowed me to come up with an idea and believe that I could be the one to make it happen…and then actually go for it and make it a reality.
