"My undergraduate degree was in music performance, so the IMBA program represented a dramatic change in direction. However, I was delighted to discover an ability in certain subjects (statistics and economics) that I hadn't anticipated. I felt supported and encouraged by the staff and professors throughout the degree program. The knowledge I acquired during the MBA program has informed a lot of the work I have since performed as a financial planner and investment professional in New York City."
