“I strive to be a highly-qualified manager who has demonstrated the ability to deliver results, and whose background is framed with experience and education to adapt, modify, and create strategic objectives addressing critical issues and changing business needs.”
Lisa Okerstrom has always had the goal of pursuing her MBA for both personal satisfaction and professional advancement. When deciding on the right fit for an MBA program, she had a unique insight into the culture that St. Catherine University has to offer. “My daughter is an undergraduate student and loves the student experience as a Katie!”
From the experienced faculty to the diverse professional backgrounds of the students, Lisa says that the most valuable part of the St. Kate’s MBA is the breadth of experience offered by each individual. Students and teachers alike typically all have professional careers while in the program, which allows for in-depth conversation about how to apply theory to real-world thinking.
Currently working as Sales Operations Manager at 3M, Lisa has a wide array of experience in business, accounting, and finance partnered with management and leadership skills. This background alongside an MBA from St. Kate’s will inevitably work together to assist her in pursuing her long-term career goals, and to be a strong, respected leader at 3M.
“I will utilize the MBA Program at St. Kate’s to accelerate my ability and help position me to be qualified for ongoing management positions at 3M. My long-term goal is to be an integral member of the management team driving 3M Company’s continued success well into the future!”
