My Experience at Portland State University

I attended Portland State University for my undergraduate degree and decided to continue my journey at PSU for graduate school because I am constantly inspired by the culture of inclusion and I greatly resonate with The School of Business' values. I have really enjoyed the MBA program so far, especially the innovative and dynamic curriculum that evolves with the needs of the industry. During the first year of The Portland MBA, I particularly enjoyed the strategy and leadership courses. In addition to the amazing professors, I've also learned so much from my peers. I’ve noticed that the admissions team places high importance on recruiting a diverse pool of candidates, allowing for a diversity of perspectives in classroom discussions.

My Advice for Exploring Graduate Business School

I suggest immersing yourself in the graduate school experience as much as possible. The Graduate School of Business provides many opportunities for potential students to do so by sitting in on classes, meeting with student ambassadors, and taking a campus tour of the Karl Miller Center. Please reach out if you have any questions about my experience, I'm happy to chat and offer any advice that might be helpful.

My Future Goals

I hope to use my passion for strategy and transformation, consumer behavior, and data analysis to optimize the customer experience. Upon graduation, I will be working in consulting at a large professional services firm.

My Background

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing and a minor in economics in 2018. That same year, I started The Portland MBA. My professional experience consists of several part-time marketing positions throughout undergrad and graduate school. Currently, I'm a Product Marketing Intern at Intel Corporation. Between the first and second years of my MBA, I interned at The Kroger Co. and during the first year of my MBA, I worked at The Graduate Business Programs as a Marketing Assistant.
