Diana Czulada FischerExecutive MBA Senior Clinical Transformation Consultant
“I was coming from the world of clinical care and was not used to talking to business types. I needed to learn a whole new language, gain confidence talking to business leaders, and understand the financial side.”
If you ask Diana Fischer what she thinks of the Questrom EMBA program she’ll say, “It has completely changed my life.” And it has.
EMBA’s integrated curriculum helped Diana add value to her then role as front-line manager where she was able to immediately bring back lessons to the office each week. “I was able to test and “fast fail” with new strategies and tactics.”
The intimate learning community that EMBA provided meant the world to her. “I was coming from the world of clinical care and was not used to talking to business types. I needed to learn a whole new language, gain confidence talking to business leaders, and understand the financial side.”
With EMBA, Diana has been able to gain, “executive presence.” Since the program, she’s been able to break out of her comfort zone and dive into another industry. She says EMBA allowed her to switch industries and get her out of the box she’d been stuck in. After earning her MBA, she became chief of staff and director of business operations for an industry-leading insurance provider, doubling her salary in six months. She is now a senior clinical transformation consultant.
Diana says she and her EMBA classmates are still in touch. They follow each other on LinkedIn, they update each other on how things are going in their positions, and they never hesitate to lend help and advice to one another. “The tight-knit nature of the program really fosters the making of these close bonds.”
