Elijah Metcalf, MBA'11

Elijah Metcalf, MBA’11, joins host Dr. Monica Powell for a discussion about nontraditional paths to an MBA and a business career. Metcalf, a vice president of internal audit at NexBank, discusses why a theater background such as his did not put pursuit of an MBA out of the realm of possibility. He explains that he parlayed his communications skills and creativity into a role as a contributing member of his fulltime MBA cohort and then used those skills again in his rise up the corporate ladder.
