For myself, when I came to the program, I think it was more of just trying to gain more
knowledge into finance, because that’s the concentration I was in.
Faculty is very helpful. Oftentimes you can get in contact with them whenever you want.
If you need help with anything . . . whether it be an email or a phone call, they’re
very responsive to you.
I think the program, in general, has given me a chance to actually push myself to a limit
that I don’t think I was every challenged to before.
This summer, I had the opportunity to do an internship at Intel Corporation in Portland,
and there were plenty of MBAs from all across the United States. But what stood out the
most is we were able to roll up our sleeves and get the job done. And, on top of that,
we actually went out of our way to make sure that we built these relationships with people
and gave us the networking opportunities that would make us successful.
There’s lots of student organizations—anywhere from a general MBA Association, which organized
a lot of the social events, to more of the concentration association, such as . . .
there’s a marketing association, a finance association, as well as supply chain. I’m
also involved with the Women’s MBA Association, which is a smaller-knit group because of just
the size of the women population in the program—but it gives a chance for the women to come together
as well outside the classroom and, you know, kind of bond and create networking opportunities.
