Would You Earn Your MBA – in Another Language?

It’s never easy to uproot your life, learn a new language and immerse yourself in a different culture, but Claudia Zavala, Class of 2015, and her husband, Carlos, knew they could make it.

Honduras natives, the Zavalas were both working for Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co., an apparel company representing some of the top brands in performance workwear across more than 100 countries. In 2000, before starting their family, they were transferred to the United States.

She Almost Quit the Program. She Graduated Valedictorian.

Kim Speairs, Class of 2014, is a single mother of two who oversees client services at Balcom Agency, the largest full-service marketing firm in Fort Worth, so she’s used to juggling a lot of different things.

And she’s good at it. Kim holds an Accreditation in Public Relations, a prestigious National PRSA Bronze Anvil Award, and was named one of the Fort Worth Business Press’ Who’s Who in Tarrant County from 2000-2002.
