"I was an active duty officer in the Coast Guard."
I'm Ethan Postrel. Before my career in business, I was an active duty officer in the US Coast Guard. I chose to go to business school to aid in my transition from the military to the private sector, with the goal of eventually becoming an executive. For anyone opting for business school as they transition from the military to civilian life, I recommend that you visit potential schools ahead of time, talk to admissions staff, and sit in on a class or two.
From Coast Guard to Business School
"I had a little bit of work experience, and leadership experience in the Coast Guard, but not much actual business specific experience. I knew in order to be competitive, I needed a little something more. So I decided to got to business school."
