A master strategist in work and life

Sarah Williamson, Leeds MBA, Director of Strategy and Business Development

As director of strategy and business development at a leading medical technology company, Sarah Williamson focuses on the future.

Similarly, the future was on her mind when Williamson graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science; she realized she was missing core business skills that could catapult her career.  So she decided to pursue an MBA at Leeds School of Business, where she developed business acumen and a powerful network.

“The graduate degree gives you a network – people as successful and ambitious as you, and they’re going to become the people who want to hire you, the people you want to hire, your mentors,” says Williamson (MBA’08).

An expert strategist, leader and Leeds alumna, Williamson attributes her professional and personal success to the power of her MBA.
