Women Alumnae Share Benefits of Getting a Simon MBA

By: Tonya

This month we hosted our first "Women's Conference," an event for prospective female Simon students.  What a great event!  We had women come from Chicago, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City to learn more about the Simon MBA experience.  The women had the opportunity to meet with our current students and alumnae who shared their stories about getting a Simon MBA.  Our alumnae touted the MBA as "a degree for life," and told the women how the Simon MBA has prepared them for the various leadership positions they have fulfilled in their careers.

The keynote at dinner was given by Deborah Soffin '01, Iams Dog Brand Manager, who discussed her 7 years at P&G and her work with Dryel, Gain, and Iams Multi-Cat, as well as Iams Dog Brand.  The following morning the women had breakfast with Denise Fitzgerald '02, Chief Executive Officer, Midlakes Management Corporation, who shared her insights on leveraging the MBA in the field of health care management. 

We are so appreciative of the following alumnae who shared their experiences on the alumni panels: Katie Dudek '05, Financial Analyst, Xerox Corporation; Malati Patil '08, Business and Planning Analyst, Executive Associate Compensation and Benefits, M&T Bank; and Kristin Short '02, Assistant Vice President, The Bank of New York Mellon.

We look forward to this becoming an annual event!
