Because of his time in WPI’s MBA program, Marc has become a "T-shaped person,” as a few of his professors have called it. While he is an established software engineer (he’s currently a Mobile Client Developer at Swirl Networks), he also feels confident that he can lead others in and out of his organization, tackling the more artful skills of business and management. With these newly obtained talents, Marc feels completely capable of achieving his lifelong goal of starting a software company.
When he graduates from the MBA program, he’ll walk away with a few powerful lessons from his faculty mentors: Mark Rice convinced him that entrepreneurship is within his reach; and Steve Taylor taught him that great leaders inspire those around them.
I usually work about 9-10 hours a day as a Mobile Client Developer at Swirl Networks.
When the workday ends, I stay at the office to save time and get some reading done or take calls with my group.
Once I’m home for the day, I take about an hour or so to unwind before heading to bed and starting again the next day. I get the bulk of my assignments done on the weekends, as well as working in some time with friends and for exercise.
