Pharmacy, MBA alumna finishes specialty residency, begins executive fellowship
Alumna Gabrielle Pierce moved to Washington, D.C., for an Executive Fellowship in Association Leadership and Management with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
“Some of the areas of focus in the fellowship are strategic planning, marketing, educational program development, membership recruitment and advocacy,” Pierce said. “I think a lot of the didactic courses and skills taught in the Professional MBA program provided a great basis for me to speak to during the interview process and helped me identify areas of improvement for myself that I can pursue during this fellowship.”
Pierce said that the business classes she took that covered strategic management were particularly applicable to her career in pharmacy. She also became knowledgeable about small business law, innovation and technology development strategies, small business management and general financial and managerial accounting.
