Nathan Martin, US Navy, Executive MBA, Class of 1996

After having graduated from North Dakota State University in 1988 with a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering, Nathan was commissioned at Officer Candidate School in Newport, RI, and completed nuclear power training. It was near the end of his first sea assignment in 1993 that Nathan decided to pursue a graduate degree during his next shore assignment. “With my technical background, I thought getting an MBA would give me both the education and experience I would not otherwise gain,” he says. “In addition, pursuing an MBA gave me a chance to study finance and economics, both personal interests of mine.” In 1996, Nathan earned his MBA from Simon Business School. While at Simon, he also served as class officer and instructor at the Naval ROTC unit. Over the years, Nathan has been awarded the Meritorious Service medal, six Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medals, and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medals. Nathan has served in the Navy for more than two decades and now leads 120 sailors.
