STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

There was a great spirit of cooperation and camaraderie amongst my fellow students. I keep in touch with a number of my fellow Katz classmates to this day and we all agree that our time at Katz had a significant impact on our lives and careers.

Scott Frenz

MBA '02

“It is incredible how quickly your network can expand and how many opportunities you are presented with through the Katz MBA Program. I had always heard that an MBA, for those who are all in, is life changing. After receiving my degree from Katz, I realize that is certainly the case.
