Master of Business Administration, International Business
Fall 2007 my studies at Mercer focused heavily on Corporate Governance, ethics and SOX. I completed a field study where I met with officials from institutions of the NYSE, SEC and PCAOB and engaged in meaningful discussions surrounding SOX. In addition, I applied the information gained from the meetings to my interpretation of The Number by Alex Berenson and presented a case study to my cohort program.
Mercer University equipped me with the knowledge to understand emerging markets, barriers to entry, business start-up, application of a SWOT analysis and financial reporting and regulatory environment.
Outside of studies, I developed life-long friendships with students of the cohort program. It was definitely a time where we connected and supported each other while working full-time and attending graduate school full-time.
