Alumni Spotlight

Michelle Klieger

Michelle Klieger

President and Founder, Stratagerm Consulting

Remember way back to when you were learning to tie your shoes or braid your hair? The way the shoe strings or sections of hair weaved around each other was purposeful. Odds are, if you tugged at one of the shoe strings or strands of hair, all of your hard work would be unraveled. Your strings or sections of hair were bound together to form exactly what you were looking for — a perfectly tied knot that you hoped would stay put all day, or a perfectly bound braid.

Looking back on her career thus far, Michelle Klieger, a 2015 MS-MBA alumna, views her MS-MBA degrees similarly to the art of tying shoes or braiding hair. Her degrees have served as a common thread, weaving their way into forming her career and helping her achieve her goals in many ways.
