According to Jenny, her Barry MBA helped her to achieve success. "I feel that Barry offered me a wonderful knowledge base as well as a multi-cultural experience. This is extremely important to me in my current position where I deal with many different cultures throughout the day. I also feel that my athletic experience (soccer and rowing) taught me time-management. I learned to multi-task and always be on top of what was going on and to manage my time very wisely. Most importantly my athletic experience taught me to always keep a winning attitude and you will succeed in anything you do!"
