Sigalit Ronen

I come from a diverse business culture with over 10 years of international experience in strategic sourcing, procurement, supply chain and manufacturing. Currently I work for a global supplier of packet and optical solutions that power the world's largest networks.

My background has taught me critical thinking, analytical skills, and fueled my interests toward scientific exploration and management research. After earning an MBA degree at California State University Northridge with distinction, I look to return to a research-driven doctorate program which places emphasis on managerial issues and their impact on both academic theory and the latest practices in business administration.

I believe that bridging the gap between academic theories and applied research can help make a difference in organizational outcomes and positively impact learning. My ultimate goal is to pursue a career in the management research and academia. Equally important, becoming a doctorate student is a growth opportunity to contribute to the life-time learning, give back to the community and help educate future leaders.

I volunteer for and support initiatives that connect, educate and empower women.
