I chose the Saunders School of business to receive my MBA because after much research I found the professors to have a strong understanding of business principles in real world applications. Most of my professors had a vast number of years of experience and were passionate about sharing that knowledge with their students.
I’m currently a Retail Execution Manager for KraftHeinz where I’m responsible for managing a team of 4 that’s in charge of driving retail excellence for the Mid Atlantic and Northeast. We work with various broker partners to ensure that the KraftHeinz portfolio is properly represented in retailers such as Tops, Giant Eagle, Shoprite, the NYC market, and Wegmans just to name a few.
During my time I learned how to analyze businesses from various functions whether it was marketing, finance, or operations. I feel that was one of my biggest takeaways during my time at Saunders and what has helped me succeed as a manager at a well-known CPG company.
