Katharine Grimmer earned her MBA (’12) as part of a cohort: a group of students who journey through a degree program together. In this short video, Grimmer describes her cohort as “a group of smart, driven individuals..from different backgrounds and career areas.” Grimmer sites collaborating with peers outside her chosen field of biotech — and small class sizes — as instrumental in her education. Cohort-style learning also helped inform and inspire the launch of her entrepreneurial product, Lotus Rx Hair Solution.
Because Grimmer was working full time while pursuing an MBA, she chose to blend in-person cohort learning with online classes. GGU is nationally recognized as the #1 college for adult learners because it offers students like her the flexibility they need.
