Molly Joyce (MBA ’13) didn’t want to graduate from an MBA program without understanding people. A program that focused on more than just the basic business functions was important to her. And Carey Business School’s core values offered the business mindset while tying into a human perspective.

A program that focused on more than just the basic business functions was important to her. And Carey Business School’s core values offered the business mindset while tying into a human perspective.

Currently, Joyce is the senior manager of marketing and commercial strategy at Disneyland Resort. Her role works closely with colleagues across a variety of sectors with different experiences and backgrounds on managing large operations.

“I wanted an MBA program where I was not only going to learn how to survive in the business-world but also understand people and make the marketplace better. Carey promised me that from the onset,” Joyce said.

With the full-time MBA program being so new, Joyce weighed her options and ultimately chose Carey because of its strong ties to building better business.

“‘Building for what’s next’ is so important. How do we evolve and innovate moving forward? Carey offered that and more,” Joyce said.

Fostering international communication

Working at a worldwide organization, Joyce quickly found herself tapping into the skills from her MBA to help bridge the gap between consumer and industry needs, while learning to effectively work with others around the globe.

“The skills I learned years ago at Carey are still relevant in my job. Here I am eight years later, using the same strategies and applying them throughout my career,” Joyce said.

“My time at Carey taught me to listen, learn, and fuse our experiences to create something more. I work with so many individuals who have different perspectives that we are now able to push boundaries and try new ventures,” Joyce said.

Building together

While Joyce was learning in her courses, Carey Business School was only in its second year offering the full-time MBA program.

Joyce and her classmates had the opportunity to partake in open discussions with professors and departments to help shape the culture moving forward.

“Inclusivity is not just people from different walks of life. It’s how you work, communicate, and form relationships as well,” Joyce said.

And Joyce said inclusivity was rooted in Carey’s programs from the start.

She recounts the project-based and team environments in the MBA courses forming a solid foundation of inclusivity and being the building blocks for how she progressed in her career.

Not only did the rigorous course load help shape her future, but the programs tied into the sole reason Joyce chose Carey – to understand business and its people.

“Carey’s MBA program truly set me up for success.”
