Along with my other friends and colleagues, I will be helping to chronicle and share some of my student life experiences in the program. As our Cornell-Queen's Executive MBA
Class of 2015 celebrates a small milestone of completing six courses

The setting was a conference hall converted to a makeshift fitness assessment room at the Donald Gordon Conference Center at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. I was here as part of the comprehensive all round development for the MBA for Executive students in the Cornell-Queen’s Executive MBA program, about 2,700 miles away from my home in Seattle.
