Ebony Joseph '11 - MBA
"Curry College has been a tremendous help as I look to greater opportunities within my company," says Ebony Joseph, a Manufacturing Engineer for Thermo Fisher Scientific in Franklin. "Curry has placed me in a better position as I look to move into a management role; to be a manager of an engineering department and eventually a Director of Operations. I knew an engineering degree alone would not get me there ̶ I needed an MBA."
For Ebony, the Curry College experience made sense. She looked for a program that would fit in with her busy life as she raised a family, managed a demanding career, and even stayed active with the Society of Women Engineers and The Girl Scouts.
"A friend who took the program a couple of years before me had a lot of great things to say. When I went to an Open House I was very impressed at the dedication of the professors, and how this one-day -a-week program would allow me to start and finish the program with the same group of students."
Her cohort shared learning experiences and notable life experiences, including two marriage proposals, four weddings, and five childbirths during their two years together. "I wanted to build networking opportunities and friendships from this program ̶ and I got that... a group of about 20-30 of us had dinner just a few weeks ago."
Ebony found the MBA program coursework, and especially the Capstone project, rewarding. "Acting as the project manager for the Capstone challenged me in my leadership abilities. It helped me in areas that needed to be developed and exposed me to other areas I didn't even know a leader needed to succeed."
Ebony led a team of MBA cohorts to meet regularly with executives from Capstone client Polartec, a leader in the fleece manufacturing industry, while developing a Manuscript filled with recommendations for company growth. "I was so impressed at how candid they were, as they looked to our group to help them find solutions to help them improve their business. It was an intense and exciting experience, and Curry keeps us informed on how they've implemented many of our recommendations."
