Let’s Talk MBA Specializations With Utica College

This is a sponsored conversation brought to you by Utica College.

At some point in your career, you may have heard a self-deprecating quip from someone who claimed to be a "jack of all trades, but a master of none." It's a slight nod to the idea that someone couldn't decide what they wanted to be when they grew up, but also the regret that didn't identify a specialization in their career.

And there's little debate these days — a niche is crucial to a successful career. Early on, a lot of people are afraid of being pigeon-holed into one area of knowledge, but as your career progresses, the lack of an expertise may resign you to a "master or none."

Today, we're speaking with two Utica College professors, Stephanie Nesbitt and Donna Dulansky, about the importance of specializations in education. Stephanie is the Director of the MBA and RMI Programs and Assistant Professor of Risk Management and Insurance. Donna is a graduate of the Utica MBA program and is now a Professor of Practice in accounting. She is a CPA and prior to joining the school, she was a vice president with a regional bank.
