PacTec, Inc. of Clinton, LA is proud to announce and celebrate Micah Schilling’s recent achievement of earning his Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a dual concentration in finance and management from Tulane University in New Orleans. While working full-time in the family business, Micah pursued an intensive virtual and on-campus schedule to achieve this goal. In addition to helping lead PacTec’s business development, Micah also serves as an integral member of the management team developing the vision for increasing the company’s international presence.
“I felt it was essential for Micah to absorb as much business acumen from Tulane’s impressive cohort of executives across business and industry as I groom him to succeed me in leading PacTec’s growth into the future,” commented Mike Schilling, President/CEO.
Schilling chose Tulane based on the program's emphasis on international business, something he found critically important given PacTec's sales and manufacturing presence in Europe and Asia. The program has been incredibly useful in applying classroom learning to real-time application, helping business leaders grow and develop their organizations with the support from best-in-class professors and the Tulane alumni network.
Schilling obtained his undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University in 2012 after having been drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 1st round (41st) of the 2002 MLB June Amateur Draft directly from high school at Silliman Institute. Amidst the full-time job, heavy coursework, and the COVID-19 pandemic, he and his wife Anna welcomed their first child, Henry Harrison during the Spring semester.
