Dressed for success with an air of quiet confidence, Ben Rosenfeld M.B.A. ’10 reflects on a year of academic success and personal growth having recently completed his M.B.A. in Leadership at Rindge.
“I loved the program and feel very fortunate to have been a part of the inaugural class.”
Rosenfeld received his B.S. in Sport Management from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2006 and was accustomed to large lecture halls and limited class interaction.
“My M.B.A. program was quite a change,” said Rosenfeld. “Being a small graduate class at Rindge and moving through the program as a cohesive group, we bonded quickly. The M.B.A. classes are taught in an open forum, so the coursework required us to constantly engage each other in discussions and projects. We would feed off each others ideas and experiences, learning as much from each other as we did from our professors.”
The accelerated program not only challenged Rosenfeld academically, but required him to develop disciplined work habits and time management skills. “As much as I value the education I received at Pierce, completing my degree in one year and working as a graduate assistant with the men’s basketball team demanded that I learn quickly to multitask and be very disciplined in managing my time,” said Rosenfeld. “Developing these life skills was an added benefit.”
“When I look back over the last year, what impresses me most is how much my classmates and I have matured,” said Rosenfeld. “We’ve all have come a long way in a very short time. I’ve developed lasting friendships with students, staff and faculty that I’ll carry with me long after graduation, so Pierce will always be a part of my life.”
Success: Congratulations are in order. Rosenfeld accepted the Director of Basketball Operations position at Loyola Marymount University in California prior to graduation and is now preparing for his move to Southern California.
