Student Spotlight: Adam Grant (Walton Executive MBA ’24)

Adam Grant is a sales account manager at Butterball, LLC and a member of the 2024 Walton Executive MBA cohort. In his role, Adam provides support to Walmart and Sam's Club accounts through sales insights and solutions, works closely with customer merchants, and aids in the development and execution of sales plans that deliver volume, revenue, and profitability goals.

Adam decided to pursue an MBA because he wanted to advance his career and accelerate his personal growth: “I’m always striving to continuously improve and I knew the Walton EMBA program would help me accomplish this.”

The most transformative part of the program for Adam has been the professors: “They are passionate about the subjects they teach and preparing us to succeed in our careers.” As a working professional, he also appreciates being able to relate to the subject matter. “At the graduate level, I’m able to apply my career experiences to the material and take away more lasting learnings,” shares Grant.

Adam is grateful for the diversity of his cohort: “Being back in a diverse, academic environment helps elevate my skill set and leadership abilities by exposing me to new perspectives. Being in group projects has allowed me to continue learning how to collaborate with people of different backgrounds, skillsets, and personalities.”

Originally from Salisbury, MD, Adam graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He enjoys listening to music, going to concerts, reading, staying active, and traveling.

We are proud to have you in the Walton Executive MBA program, Adam!
