Ashley Broering has spent the last five years working to improve patient experience in the healthcare industry.
Initially working as a healthcare analyst and then as a product manager at Press Ganey Associates in New York, Ashley has been responsible for the strategic development of several technologies giving patients greater control over their own care.
Now, after winning the Woodside MBA Women’s Scholarship, Ashley is embarking on an MBA Full Time at the UWA Business School. Over the coming year, she hopes to build on her expertise in product management and analytics, sharpen her critical thinking and analytic skills and enjoy a year of living in sunny Perth.
“In my prior roles, I relied on a variety of financial metrics, market research, and other data. While data can be a powerful asset, it is also necessary to understand which metrics matter and how to analyse and present findings in a way that tells an accurate and compelling story,” Ashley said.
“Over the next 12 months, I hope to sharpen my critical thinking and analytical skills, while also learning how to use data to drive meaningful change.
“I am excited about the opportunity to learn new ways of approaching global issues such as healthcare, economic development, and the preservation of natural resources. Undertaking an MBA will strengthen my ability to think big and inspire.
“As I progress in my career, I would like to influence and lead corporations to have a positive and sustainable social impact.
“The Woodside MBA Women’s Scholarship is an incredible gift that will allow me to further my education through The University of Western Australia. I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity, as it will allow me to participate in a full-time MBA program and completely focus on the coursework to more rapidly advance my career.”
The UWA Business School will hold its next MBA information evening on Wednesday 8 March. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
