As a member of the Strategic Innovation Career Academy, you already have an advantage over other MBAs.
First, your academy faculty director, Barry Thomas, is watching carefully over the SMI and Supply Chain and Analytics curriculum to ensure it's relevant and doing its job: preparing you for your career.
The second differentiator: your personal coach, the academy business director Meg Thompson. The director uses her deep industry experience to help you develop as a leader and hone the soft skills required of a professional in your field. Because of Tippie's focus on individual attention, you'll have constant access to your coach, who'll give you individualized attention that will make you a success.
The academy business directors are seasoned professionals and excellent mentors, not to mention a great resource for contacts in the industry. Professor Thomas and Mrs. Thompson understand SMI and productivity improvement inside and out, and will help ensure you have the mental acumen to climb the ladder. All of the academy leaders are here to make sure you're equipped with the right tools to succeed.
