I think very few people successfully plan what they will be when they grow up, and sometimes it just happens. I went to undergrad at Oklahoma State and earned an accounting agree because my mom always wanted one and didn’t get one. So she kind of lived vicariously through me. I went to Arthur Andersen straight out of college, worked for them 10 years and learned a great deal but decided to leave to pursue other opportunities. Leaving Andersen for Baylor was the best decision I have ever made professionally.
I had always known about Rice and lived in or around West University since I moved to Houston 22 years ago. When I came to Baylor in 1998 my manager suggested I get my MBA, and I put it off for a few years. When I finally looked at all the available options I only applied to Rice. I was very happy to be accepted into the MBA for Executives program.
