Walamatien Coulibaly

Cohort: 2014
Country: Cote D'Ivoire
Level of Study: Graduate
Major: MBA/ Supply Chain Management
College: College of Business
Biography: Walamatien received his Master's of Business Administration with an emphasis on Supply Chain Management. For eight years, he was a high school teacher in Cote D'Ivoire, and during this time he realized that one way to increase school participation is through school nutrition. A mismanagement of the national school-feeding program has motivated him to earn a degree that would enable him to help his country and he hopes to do that through the knowledge gained in his program at MSU.
