A vibrant exchange

For Peter Ott, MBA ’09, the rich dialogue of the Clark community was key to opening his mind to new and broader ways of thinking. “I was able to hear the perspectives of students and faculty who’d worked in other industries and who had different views from the one I brought from the IT world,” he says.

He most appreciates the Clark faculty and their first-hand knowledge of a range of industries. “It’s easy to teach from a book,” says Peter. “But the instructors at Clark have actually been there and share real, relevant business experience in the classroom.”

The chance to collaborate on Clark projects with students from France to India readied Peter for the global aspects of his current job. “Clark gave me a comprehensive understanding of the business world – one I’d never have if I’d stayed in the back room dealing with only bits and bytes.”
