Meet an Alum
Jeff Fazek had been working in IT delivery for almost 20 years when he decided to pursue his Executive MBA in order to gain the skills needed to move up the corporate ladder.
He said that one feature that drew him to Kent State’s program was the course schedule.
“I needed a program that was on the weekend only because I traveled during the week and would miss too many Thursday and\or Friday classes,” Fazek said. “Being able to go on Saturday, and even having the flexibility of the distance learning week, enabled me to maintain my work-life balance throughout the program.”
Fazek said the program helped him in a number of ways and said he has developed lifelong friendships as a result.
“The biggest benefit that I gained from the program was an added level of confidence. It enabled me to pursue a different career path that I had never truly considered before,” Fazek said. “I am now leveraging the presentation skills that I honed throughout the program and have moved into technology sales and am able to be home with my family much more than I was before.”
