Scot Ferrell, FBCI, CBCP is a graduate of GGU (MBA ’88, Finance) and also serves on its Board of Directors. Based in San Francisco, he has held management positions at EY and Gap, Inc. and is currently Managing Director at Marsh Risk Consulting’s (MRC) within its Risk Consulting Practice. Over 600 organizations have benefited from Ferrell’s assistance in development of their risk management programs.
In this short video, Ferrell discusses his experience in the MBA program and what makes GGU different. “One of the things that I love about GGU is that the classes are taught by business professionals,” he says. “It’s more than just the theory. Theory is great but they teach you what you need to know–for example, how to close a deal or communicate effectively.”
