Kelly Feist selected as 2017 Best EMBAs Recipient

EMBA ’17 Alum receives national recognition

Kelly Feist was selected as one of the 2017 Best EMBAs by Poets and Quants. As Vice President and Business Leader for Patient Care and Monitoring Solutions, Kelly runs a $1.8 billion dollar business for Philips Healthcare. During the Vanderbilt Executive MBA program this second-degree black belt spent her free time running, bicycling, and honing her skill as an accomplished photographer. Find out why Kelly chose Vanderbilt’s Executive MBA Program below. You can find Kelly’s full interview on the Poets and Quants website.

Why did you choose the Vanderbilt Executive MBA program? I chose Vanderbilt over several executive programs that were closer to home for two simple reasons: 1. Vanderbilt was interested in me as a person and in the success of its students; and 2. Vanderbilt has an active alumni association with a valuable network and contacts.

What was your biggest regret in business school? That I did not go back to school sooner in my career.

In one sentence, how would you like your peers to remember you? I would like my peers to remember me as an approachable and open person; someone who is competent, respected and respectful, and hopefully a resource to them in the future.
