Deputy Executive Director-External Affairs at New York Cares

"The program was one of the best opportunities—from both an educational and professional perspective—of my life."

Challenges
My tenure at New York Cares and other social service agencies beforehand gave me great real-world experience in nonprofit management, but without formal management training I often found myself basing too many strategic decisions on intuition rather than core knowledge of theories and best practices.

Impact
The Senior Leaders Program changed this. The curriculum was fantastic, and the professors were among Columbia Business School's most renowned. The takeaways, especially those related to strategic management, negotiation, and financial analysis, were immediately applicable. Because of the Program, I make smarter decisions with greater efficacy for New York Cares and our stakeholders.
