"Working at a company where leadership is among our core values, I was excited to start a master’s program in leadership," said Jennifer Gorczynski ’05 MBA. As a business control specialist at Bank of America Home Loans, Gorczynski sees leadership as an integral part of success, in business and in life. "I think it is important to empower others as a means to personal and organizational success," Gorczynski explained. "Instead of providing answers or just doing a task for someone, work with them to get their suggestions. Who knows - they may have a fantastic new solution or idea!"

"You need to be open to both new ideas and change and when either come along, pursuing them with enthusiasm," she offered. "Don’t continue with the status quo because ‘it is what we have always done’; take the extra steps to ask ‘why’ and be willing to make changes to improve a process or a situation."

Gorczynski received a Young Alumni Award from Medaille in 2007 based on her extensive community service. Currently, she is a member of Toastmasters and volunteers through Bank of America with its Community Volunteers and LEAD for Women (Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Development of Women) organization.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
