I don't think I would have been able to do the things I love without the experience, knowledge and confidence I gained through UAA.Brad Hillwig, M.B.A. '10
Looking for a way to combine his two decades of experience in media and communications with the growth opportunities provided by a business, Brad Hillwig enrolled at UAA to pursue his M.B.A. In 2021, when many businesses were shuttering due to the pandemic, Hillwig started Greatland Studios where he develops original films, as well as branded projects for clients by identifying stories that make them unique, and then producing humanistic and professional documentaries to share those stories with audiences. Since then, he has also moved into the nonprofit sector, serving as senior director of communications at Cook Inlet Tribal Council.
