Renato Ulpiano co-founded Ladybug House – a therapy and assessment clinic for children – in his first year of the Doctor of Business Administration. He immediately began applying his research and coursework to his business, making a difference in the lives of patients.
“With a career in corporate, marketing and IT roles, I was ready to channel my experience into something that felt more meaningful to me. I chose VU for my DBA for the convenience of the city location and flexibility of the course. These are important considerations, especially for people like me working full time and with a family.
The VU classroom is truly multicultural – I networked with classmates from Zimbabwe to Indonesia, and gained an appreciation for business issues around the world. The hands-on learning style helped us better understand the concepts.
VU is changing the face of business, and positively influencing people’s lives.
At our practice, when a child comes in crying, and walks out laughing, we know we’ve made a difference.”
