 Why MIB at Fletcher? The MIB program is what attracted me to Fletcher. When I decided to return to school, I was looking for a program that would allow me to gain core business skills while staying abreast of development topics of interest to me. My experience working at the World Bank influenced me to focus on energy, which I view as a critical need for economic growth. Through its curriculum, the MIB represented an ideal opportunity to explore and understand how the private sector could be mobilized to address energy-related challenges. Meeting with Fletcher students on Admitted Student Day was also very inspiring. Each one of them spoke so highly of their experience. This, along with the sense of camaraderie I felt within the community, convinced me that I had to be here!

On a Favorite Class: One of my favorite classes this term is Emerging Africa in the World Economy. Not only has it allowed me to have a better grasp on business constraints and opportunities on the continent, but it has also challenged my views on economic development. The professor systematically draws examples from his professional experience at the UN and the Central Bank of Nigeria, making the material even more relevant and practical.
