A Great Match Brings Great Opportunity

Geory Kurtzhals found her perfect match for an MBA program at Clark. Here, she can earn her MBA while concentrating in Sustainability and Social Change - two areas about which she cares deeply - learning responsible management practices that consider businesses’ environmental and social impacts at both the local and global level.

Geory notes that concentrating in Sustainability and Social Change included a Sustainability Consulting Projects course, which allows students to gain hands-on experience in helping companies find solutions to actual sustainability-related problems.

"I've enjoyed working on these projects because we are working with a real external client to create a sustainability action plan for their organization," Geory states. "It not only allows us to apply knowledge from a variety of courses in a practical setting, but also provides a well-rounded foundation for my continued career growth."

Geory most appreciates the fact that the Graduate School of Management offers a diverse student body with a wide variety of backgrounds and ethnicities.

"This setting, in addition to a comfortable environment where students are encouraged to express differing views, provides a platform to network with students from all over the world," she adds.
