My name is Kate Visconti. I earned my MBA from The Graduate School at Otterbein University in 2003. I chose Otterbein, primarily, because I was already in love with the faculty, staff, campus, and educational opportunities that I had at Otterbein, having already earned a Bachelor's in English/ Secondary Education.
I love the Otterbein community (i.e., students, faculty, staff, and the Westerville area in general). Pursuing the MBA, I was able to continue take classes at my own pace with Professors that I knew, trusted, and admired.
Honestly, I had not thought about obtaining an MBA as a former teacher, but making the switch to a business education has proven to be a life-changing experience. The coursework aligned perfectly with a time for me in my career where I made some major changes. I will never forget the first time someone asked me about the price elasticity of our ATM fees and I actually knew what our Finance guy was talking about! Thanks Otterbein! I also made close friends and lasting relationships that are in place to this day. My network was definitely expanded, to the benefit of both me and my network, personally and professionally. I whole-heartedly recommend Otterbein for anyone looking to truly grow as a professional and an individual.
