Notre Dame Executive MBA South Bend
Dr. Kay Park is an alumna from Northwestern University and earned her medical degree from the University of Chicago Medical medical school. She’s also a wife and a mother to twin teenagers. So what drove her to seek an EMBA degree on top of all of that?
“Being a physician means that every minute of your day is involved in patient care unless you carve out time for breaks, lunch, etc. I started this program purely as a curiosity- to grow my business knowledge and to learn things outside the field of medicine.
Many of my cohort had specific goals for getting their EMBA and I applaud them for doing it. My goal was purely for the experience but I gained so much more than I expected.
There is never going to be a good or perfect time to do this. You have to decide what you want, no guilt. It will be a wonderful learning experience where you meet people from all walks of life and enhance your skill set.”
I chose Notre Dame for many reasons, but mainly due to the focus of growing the good in business. Being in the medical field inherently focuses on ethical behaviors. I needed a program that would focus on ethical business practices.Kay P. EMBA '21
