Alumni Spotlight: Patrice Brown, MBA ‘04

Winter

Meet Patrice Brown, MBA ’04: Product Director for Medical Education and Testing, Strategy and Health Sciences Management, American Red Cross

I am responsible for strategy development and expansion of the Medical Education and Testing product portfolio, which includes Nurse Assistant Training, Phlebotomy, Home Health Aide, EKG and other allied health training across the country.

Having attended a large school for my undergraduate degree in English, I wanted a smaller school environment to pivot my focus toward business and specifically healthcare.  Simon is also a member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, and I truly valued that relationship and support.

The foundation in financial analysis and healthcare management I gained at Simon has helped me make business decisions and lead products to successful growth.  Also, I have made some great friends and connections that I am still in contact with nearly 10 years later.  The Simon network is very much growing stronger with time.

 My words of advice for prospective students considering Simon Business School:
Simon offers a number of leadership opportunities that are not available to the same extent in other programs. Take advantage of every opportunity to get involved, make a difference and build relationships.
