For Erin Hemm, the St. Ambrose Doctor of Business Administration fulfills a personal commitment to learn throughout her career and expand her expertise.
A Better View
"Because of my experience in the program, I have a better ability to step back from the tactical discussion and view a strategic conversation from a distance," Erin says. "It has allowed me to objectively view a problem and approach it from business, market, human performance, and strategic angles, with industry pressures in mind. In doing so, I bring a fresh perspective to my team and have expanded the body of expertise I can contribute."
Operating on a Higher Plane
"Too often, we're willing to spend time watching TV or scrolling through social media, but we’re not willing to give ourselves the honor of applying that time to develop ourselves. I'd recommend this program to anyone who wants to reallocate that lost time to expanding their body of knowledge and operating on a higher plane of business intellect."
An Enriching and Inspiring Program
"People like me who see themselves as lifelong learners are always seeking to find the next thing that ignites their passion for learning," Erin says. "We're the kind of people who turn up the radio when they hear a story about a new study on human behavior or find themselves enthralled in a discussion about team dynamics."
Why Choose the DBA Program?
"Getting a degree like this isn't about holding a piece of paper or checking a box on a new skill. It's about exploring and contributing to the body of knowledge as an expert in the field of business. It's about answering the question: 'What's possible?' We hone our expertise so we ask better questions and seek better answers."
