“I always planned to go back to school, so when this opportunity came up, I jumped on it. The MBA I’m doing with a cohort of some coworkers at York Water takes the MBA and puts a public utilities industry spin on it to make it more relevant to my work every day. For one project, we identified, researched, and presented findings on an issue in our current company. The result was something real, something beneficial that we could take back to the workplace. It was a really cool way to learn research.”
