This is part of the MBA the ChemE Way session. The speaker is Deborah L. Grubbe, PE, CEng., Owner and Principal of Operations and Safety Solutions, LLC, a consultancy that specializes in operations and safety troubleshooting and support.  Deborah is the former Vice President of Group Safety for BP plc, which had its two safest years ever during her tenure.  During her 27 year career at DuPont, she held corporate director positions in engineering, operations and safety. For two of DuPont’s businesses, she led global manufacturing and supply chain operations from 1997 through 2001.  Deborah will share perspectives and best practices that are common in the process industries.

The session will be of interest to those who want to learn about MBA programs and content: Those who may be considering enrolling in an MBA program, those who want to understand the type of information that is covered in an MBA program, and those who would benefit from having an overview of the content of a typical MBA program, for example. The speakers are subject matter experts who will take into account the interests and background of chemical engineers in the way that they present the information.  The average student who is enrolled in an MBA program has six years of experience and is 29 years old. Students with engineering or science backgrounds comprise 35 to 40% of MBA programs. As a consequence, the session will be highly of interest to young professionals.
