Master of Business Administration (MBA)

His startup got its start at NU.

Nathanael Nienaber managed distribution for Georgia Pacific. One day it dawned on him: what if there was a way to quickly match an empty truck with someone nearby that needed to make a delivery? Nathanael took the idea to his MBA class and was encouraged to pursue it. Today his concept is an online service called Ghostruck that recently received 1.5 million dollars in venture capital. "The MBA classes really helped me through each phase of the startup process. From project management to leadership classes, I wouldn't be where I am today without them."
