My MBA helped me better understand organization infrastructure and how to strategically address gaps in operational processes. Additionally, a significant amount of Oracle employees have, or are working on, their MBA; so they definitely find value in this level of education. Overall, my MBA provided me the confidence to take on new challenges in the business world and my career development.
