Sue Baumgarten, MBA 1979
Generated International Growth for Raytheon Company
The defense industry may seem an unlikely destination for a female MBA, but Baumgarten has been a pioneer as a Corporate Vice President at Raytheon Company, and president of Raytheon International, integrating activities in 76 countries throughout the world, responsible for operational performance and international growth. In recent years, she has also earned high praise for her coaching and mentoring of UCLA Anderson students with technical backgrounds. As the Executive in Residence for Technology, Baumgarten continues to work with UCLA Anderson students through the Career Management Center and the Easton Technology Leadership Program, as well as delivering standing-room-only workshops on such topics as "Getting to the Corner Office" and "Navigating Organizational Politics."
