Leadership on the Edge

MBA group takes leadership to the edge

Allison Hartzell admittedly never went camping, nor even out on the simplest of hikes. So, why not make your first true outdoor adventure be summiting the highest mountain peak in the Northeastern United States. She did.

“Well, I wasn’t really sure what to expect,” says Hartzell ‘17, a business management graduate and first-year Master of Business Administration student at Bloomsburg University.

Developing leadership skills is the heart of BU's MBA program, providing theoretical, analytical and operational expertise managers need to meet the challenges of managing human and material resources in dynamic, competitive environments.

“I realized I can push my body and mind a lot further than I thought, and I can do anything I set my mind to,” Hartzell said. “I couldn’t think of a better way to learn about leadership than to actually go out there and do it like we did.”
