Megan Bishop, BS’11, MBA’19, is a logistics expert. As the director of operations at supply chain consulting firm enVista, timely execution and problem solving are at the core of what she does. It was natural for Bishop to put careful and meticulous thought into her plans to return to school for an MBA. She waited until she’d gained at least five years of real-world work experience before applying.
The timing was significant.
“I enrolled in the Kelley Evening MBA Program at a tough time. I was five months pregnant and managing a large team at enVista,” she said. “I not only had a lot of work-related responsibilities, but I was about to be a new mom. I decided I wanted to move forward with my MBA because it wasn’t going to be any easier when my daughter grew older.”
Bishop is a woman who knows herself and her vulnerabilities. In her free time, she’s often reading a book about diverse teams or how to make diverse workplaces work better—and more creatively—than a typical workplace. In the Kelley Evening MBA, she was seeking that diversity.
“I’m constantly trying to improve myself, especially within supply chain. It’s a male-dominated industry, so I want to make sure I have a seat at the table,” she said. “I knew that by pursuing a Kelley MBA I would gain a more diverse experience to help me get that seat."
