"Leading with Confidence"
When Kellie Webb entered the Baylor Executive MBA program she thought she would walk out with just an MBA degree, but she didn’t realize an MBA from Baylor also meant walking away with a strong network, increased business confidence, and personal leadership growth.
Kellie’s growth in the program stretched her business knowledge and challenged her to make connections across disciplines. “I am far more well-rounded as a business professional. I am able to contribute to conversations that I would not have even been at the table for prior to completing my MBA. The curriculum is such that you gain valuable insight into everything from finance to marketing to strategy. I lacked expertise in these areas as my experience was strictly healthcare delivery focused. The knowledge I gained from the program has set me up for success to build teams, create a budget, and prioritize projects based on business needs and so much more which has opened up potential leadership opportunities that I previously would not have been qualified for.”
The impact from Kellie’s growth in the program also had immediate impact at her company. “Following graduation I found that I was being pursued for roles within my company instead of having to search out opportunities. I have changed roles twice since completing the program and in both cases I was sought after and asked to apply. I believe this speaks to the value others see in the Baylor program."
The relationships that Kellie gained during her time at Baylor have continued even after graduation and have provided an network of peers and resources. “The network I gained from the Baylor EMBA Dallas program has been invaluable. This program creates a bond far beyond your class. Recently I was able to interview with a company because a graduate from the program several years before me (who I had never met) immediately responded when I reached out and was more than willing to make a connection for me. You truly become part of a family that wants to support and help each other far beyond graduation.”
