Biography

Goizueta's Weekend MBA for Executives is rigorous yet flexible to fit your lifestyle. As a result of this unique, updated structure, Thomas Spann found himself able to customize his program to gain the business skills he needed to further his career.

In addition to the customizable structure, the program gave Thomas the support he needed to take his career to the next level. When interviewing for an internal promotion, Thomas reached out to his faculty and the Career Management Center for Working Professionals (CMCWP) for guidance throughout the interviewing process as well as the compensation discussions.

"After NCR offered me the job, my biggest concern, as an internal hire, was around receiving fair-market compensation. First, I used the strategies and skills I learned in my Negotiations course. Then the night before my salary meeting, I worked with my professor to create talking points that outlined 'mutually shared interests' that helped me justify my desired compensation to the company."

In Goizueta, Thomas found a flexible program that met his needs personally and professionally.
