Jason DeBlock, US Navy, Full-Time MBA, Class of 2007

After having graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 2000 with a bachelors degree in Systems Engineering and attending naval nuclear power and nuclear prototype training in 2003, Jason heard about the Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) MBA program, which allows officers to compete for one of four scholarships to business schools. Awarded a scholarship, he chose Simon specifically for its excellence in finance. Jason earned his MBA with concentrations in Finance and Entrepreneurship in 2007. Being in the military and earning an MBA have some significant parallels, according to Jason. “Teamwork is the hallmark of both,” he says. “You can never accomplish on your own what you can accomplish with others. Diversity is another similarity. Simon is very diverse, and so is the military.” Currently on active duty as an operations officer in the US Navy, aboard the USS Bulkeley, Jason is responsible for all operational aspects of the mission, including operations, intelligence, and tactical employment of the ship and its assigned aircraft.
