Account Manager The Linde Group
"As a part of my MBA curriculum, I took a marketing elective, Creating Breakthrough Innovations, with Professor Ravi Chitturi. The final project challenged us to develop a breakthrough innovation that would benefit our company. Within weeks of my submission of the final project, my company launched a Global Innovation Challenge, a company-wide call for innovative ideas. Naturally, I submitted my final project from the course. Out a field of over 1,300 entries, the idea progressed through 2 rounds of juried judgement and refinement to the top three. I was given the opportunity to lead a team to further develop the idea, and pitch it to an audience at my company's headquarters in Germany. I am pleased to report that the idea is now in the hands of the Technology and Innovation Team. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the Lehigh MBA program."
