The Value of an MBA for Women: Maria’s Story


(upbeat orchestral music) As a woman it has greatly
boosted my confidence walking into a boardroom knowing that I can share
something new and interesting and relevant to the discussion. My name is Maria Lowry and I am a senior consultant at Calypso. My experience as a woman in
the University of Utah’s MBA program has been enormously positive. The plethora of women’s initiatives. The women involved in this program. The leadership from women in this program has spoken volumes in terms
of the University of Utah’s support of women in this field, in this discipline. It’s a level of support that
I didn’t necessarily expect, but continued to realize it’s importance. I absolutely feel it’s necessary for women to understand the basics of accounting, of finance, of leadership, in order to be a better manager, be a better leader, be a better person. (upbeat orchestral music)
