Carter Wheaton 
General Manager, Copart Hayward

When did you start taking courses and when will they be complete?

Started taking courses in 2015. I graduated December 2019.

 What are you studying and why did you choose this?

Master’s Degree – Business Administration. I decided an MBA would be most applicable to my current role and career goals. 

Has it changed anything for your work or personal life so far? 

Many of the courses, specifically leadership/organizational focused courses were directly applicable to my role as a GM. Forecasting/Budgeting courses provided me with additional tools to be successful and overall the process of taking these courses provided me with additional insight in both my personal life and career. 

Overall, what is it like balancing work and school? 

It was certainly challenging but doable. I chose an Online MBA program that allowed me to take as many or as few courses at a time. While this made the program take longer, I was able to complete coursework in my spare time while continuing to give 100% to my job and to Copart. 

Scott Mccumiskey 
Office Manager, Copart Rochester

When did you start taking courses and when will they be complete?

Started coursed on September 4, 2018. I completed courses on March 2, 2020.

 What are you studying and why did you choose this?

M.S. Business Management. To gain a better understanding of management and to increase my opportunities for advancement. 

Has it changed anything for your work or personal life so far? 

The education provided me with multiple tools that I have applied to both work and my personal life. The course work specifically helped regarding leadership and ethics. Also, it furthered my knowledge of economics and human resource management, all very important in my current position. 

Overall, what is it like balancing work and school? 

Balancing the demands of both school and work was not particularly easy. The course work was very rigorous and demanding. The program was accelerated and there were no breaks between classes. Many times, the last assignment for one class was due one day and the first assignment for the next course was due the next day. I owe a lot to my family, for being patient with me throughout the program.
