  Earning a master’s degree while working full time is, if nothing else, an extreme lesson in time management. However, the benefits of learning from the program’s skilled and dedicated faculty and totally selfless staff continue to be revealed to me. As I neared the end of the program, I transitioned from managing a large sales team at Pioneer to managing an entire business unit for one of the company’s four geographies in North America. The knowledge of agricultural business I gained in the MS-MBA program (including risk assessment techniques, marketing, economics, finance and operations) came immediately into play and had a tremendous positive impact on my ability to meet the new responsibilities.

Since assuming responsibility for Pioneer’s North American sales training and development in 2010, I have even been able to bring into play the understanding of distance-learning techniques employed in the MS-MBA. Due to the solid business fundamentals I learned in the Purdue MS-MBA program, I anticipate that I can confidently accept new roles as required by our ever-changing business climate.

The distance-learning processes and styles of the Purdue faculty are excellent at knowledge transfer, engagement (which is important when students are holding down full-time employment), and networking. My classmates learned from each other. The cross-segment networking opportunities we found in the program are attainable in few other ways in the agriculture industry. My MS-MBA cohort remains a treasured and valued resource. Directly and indirectly, we are utilizing each other’s agribusinesses as great sources of shared learning and project collaboration.
