As the Battalion Logistics Officer, I was responsible for all aspects of logistical sustainment for an Aviation Battalion consisting of 600 personnel and 40+ combat aircraft deployed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve; a joint coalition combat operation against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. With combat assets exceeding $1 billion in value, our Task Force relied on a global supply chain to bring essential logistics to a vast and complex operating environment spanning five countries. In a volatile and resource-constrained environment, I was able to apply tools like networking models from the Operations Management course to create efficiency and assess risk within a constrained supply chain. While I greatly enjoyed my experience in the classroom as a working-professional, the value of a PCSB education became evident when solving complex logistical problems in the real world.”

I was having trouble in my pre-requisite accounting class and kept missing my professor’s office hours, as we were both working professionals. One day I arrived on campus early and while walking through the hallway of Feinstein, I saw this very tall gentleman walking towards me. I introduced myself and he said “Hi, I am Pat Kelly, and I am an accounting professor here.” I thought to myself, WOW!-That’s ironic as it is my toughest class. I told him about my struggles and he said, “If you have time, I will help you right now.” I couldn’t believe it. We grabbed an abandoned classroom and he helped me through my accounting struggles on the spot! We spent an hour together that day, and I will never forget his willingness to help. At no other college would I find such a dedicated and willing team who are there to help.
The MBA experience made the difference in my career. I was in a very competitive interview process for my current role, and my experience and education gained through the Providence College MBA program differentiated me from the other candidates in the process. The Providence College MBA Program had a direct correlation on my eighteen year career success at Fidelity.
The decision to get my MBA at PC was easy, as Fidelity has an extremely generous tuition reimbursement program. I had only wished that I had not waited so long in my career to go back to PC for my MBA. As I look back now with my experience, knowledge, and lifelong network I have obtained, it was one of the smartest choices I ever made! Go Friars!”

I was drawn to PC’s MBA program for its affordability and reputation. PC is a well-known institution, and the MBA program exceeded all expectations in comparison to others being offered locally. To have a growing MBA program being ranked 55th in the country is pretty impressive considering how many different colleges and universities are around the country. Now that I’m in the program and taking classes, I can say that I made the right choice. The resources and amenities at your fingertips as a student is unparalleled.

My best memories were those involved in meeting the other students. Met a lot of great people who were starting their careers and were motivated to expand their knowledge base in certain topics. The PC MBA experience supported my career goals in that it allowed me to focus on the subjects that were important in my chosen industry. I was able to apply what I learned at PC to my current job. With such a diverse curriculum, I was able to delve into different subjects which helped determine what path I wanted my career to go down. I think the MBA was the best academic decision I have ever made. I was able to take classes at night in subjects that I was interested in. Since I was working for a company that offered tuition reimbursement, it really was an easy decision and I don’t see how anyone could pass up the opportunity.”

Since I was an English major, obtaining my MBA from Providence College put me in the right mindset, and gave me the expanded tool set, needed to face the rigors of professional life. It fostered my intellectual curiosity for the business world especially capital markets and current economic and political events.

Favorite PC MBA Memory/Experience: Undoubtedly, my favorite memory was my trip to Paris for Dr. Newth’s Global Management course! The experience left me with a surplus of knowledge regarding Parisian culture from both a business and social perspective. I did not study abroad during my undergraduate degree, so the trip was extremely meaningful. As a bonus, our class visited my company’s headquarters as one of the scheduled corporate visits. Overall, I had an amazing time with the French Friars!
How did the PC MBA experience support your career goals? I changed careers from a role in Finance to the field of Continuous Improvement towards the end of my MBA program. I felt as though I thrived in management courses, and I particularly enjoyed my Strategic Management Capstone with Dr. McIntyre. I had a great analytical foundation, but I wanted to move into a role that focused on strategy and change-leadership. I received an abundance of assistance on creating an eye-catching resume, succeeding in an interview, and tips on self-branding. Even after graduating, the PC MBA program continues to offer support with my career goals.
What is the best advice you have for anyone considering their MBA? Just go for it! Take the jump, and work hard at it. When I began the program, I was a recent undergraduate, with entry-level skills. My company offered tuition reimbursement, and the incentive accelerated the process for me. However, this program is flexible and affordable. I had a pretty demanding workload at the office, but the course times worked very well with my schedule. Throughout this journey, I have transformed into a leader, and I have PC to thank for that.”
