MSBA Grad added to Congressional Staff

MSBA Grad Brian Muhlbach
Brian Muhlbach, a recent graduate of the Master of Science in Business Analysis program at Catholic University, accepted a position as Staff Assistant in the office of Nebraska Congressman Jeff Fortenberry.  In his position as Staff Assistant, Brian will manage the front office, oversee constituent mail services and handling of all constituent requests.  Brian served as an intern in Congressman Fortenberry's office while attending the MSBA program and in his new position will be training and managing the office interns.  

Born and raised in the central Nebraska town of Ravenna, Brian received an undergraduate degree in Advertising and Public Relations from the University of Nebraska.  While at Nebraska, Brian participated in several capstone projects and campaigns and developed a passion for advertising and marketing.  He worked for the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth Families and Schools to develop their annual report, newsletters and other collateral communications.  

Brian is similarly interested in politics and lobbying and benefited from the experience to intern in Congressman Fortenberry's office where he assisted in constituent communications and planning and prepared the Congressman's year end report and other digital communications pieces.   

Referring to his current position, Brian says; "In this posting it is critical to be detail oriented, able to multi task, perform under pressure, and work within deadlines.  All of these traits are cornerstones of the MSBA program.  From day one of the program, the students learn how to hone these skills.  THe program also teaches you how to navigate in a professional environment and how to stand out in your position."  -- Brian Muhlbach, MSBA Class of 2012
