Park Fellow Alumni Profiles

Jessica Schoen, MBA '08Jessica Schoen, MBA '08

The Park program has been instrumental in shaping my career outlook. It provided an opportunity to reflect on my personal strengths and weaknesses, and think of how these align with the skills necessary to perform in the future. By using these reflections, as well as feedback from others, I can better focus the ways I choose to develop myself while at business school. The executive speaker series is also a very interesting aspect of the program. These speakers shared enlightening examples of leadership experiences in their respective careers.
