Congratulations Meredith Kirsch at Advisory Board

MSBA Grad Meredith Kirsch

Meredith Kirsch, a 2011 graduate of the MSBA program, was recently promoted to Associate Director for New Business Development at The Advisory Board in Washington DC.  Meredith began her career with The Advisory Board shortly after graduation as a Marketing Associate within the Talent Development group.

The Advisory Board Company is a global research, consulting, and technology firm partnering with 125,000 leaders in 3,200 organizations across health care and higher education.
Through an innovative membership model, the company collaborates with executives and their teams to elevate performance and solve their most pressing challenges.  The Advisory Board provides strategic guidance, actionable insights, web-based software solutions, and comprehensive implementation and management services.
The company is guided by the spirit of generosity, serving members beyond expectation and with honest appreciation in every encounter. 
Meredith serves as Associate Director for New Business Development within the Talent Development arm of the firm. Playing a pivotal role in supporting the firm’s growth, Meredith develops and executes strategic plans that result in the successful sale of Advisory Board memberships. She fosters relationships with hospital executives to understand the issues they are hoping to solve and offer the appropriate solutions.  Through conducting consultative one on one onsite presentations at member and prospect institutions, Meredith seeks to educate on the Advisory Board’s Talent Development offerings.
When asked how the MSBA program prepared her for success in the business world, Meredith cites the diverse learning opportunities she had inside and outside the classroom. 

"In addition to classroom learning, we participated in a year-long internship. I worked at St. John's College High School and the San Miguel School in Washington, DC, serving a role in their development departments. The internship provided the opportunity to interact with professionals and gain hands-on experience in a business setting. We also took part in a semester long Field Team Study.  My experience working with Microsoft in Reston, VA allowed me to apply my classroom learning to an assignment that had real value to the technology industry. Both experiences brought to life the theories and practices discussed in class."  - Meredith Kirsch, MSBA class of 2011
