The W. P. Carey School of Business, the business school of Arizona State University and one of the largest business schools in the country, recently featured Western Window Systems CEO Jason Funk and COO Scott Gates in two online news posts. Funk is an MBA graduate from the W. P. Carey School of Business. Gates is currently attending the school and is expected to earn his MBA in 2015.
One article summarizes the experience of Gates’ Executive MBA Class of 2015 following a tour of Western Window Systems.
“They [the MBA class] also saw the massive difference a company culture can make,” the article states, “not only in daily operations but long-term growth and stability.”
Another article called “Opening Doors -- and Windows” profiles Gates and his decision to attend the W. P. Carey School of Business.
“As my role expanded at Western, I felt a strong desire to strengthen my education in areas of business where I didn’t have as much experience,” Gates says in the article.
