Richard Battle-Baxter

"I took what I got and learned how to play it to my advantage."

My name is Richard Battle-Baxter and I’m a second-year MBA student at the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University. I grew up in New Jersey and graduated from Rutgers University in 2004 with a BA in Economics. Prior to business school, I was living and working in New York City as a digital marketing professional. Most recently, I was working for in a marketing role executing e-commerce and mobile marketing strategies. 

My post-MBA plans are to continue in the world of tech marketing along and also pursue a start-up venture of my own. I’m thrilled to share some words of wisdom to those just embarking on the MBA process. I hope to offer comfort to those who think they cannot get into business school. Having completed three-fourths of business school, I could not be happier with my decision.
