Career Goal: Marketing

“The Berkeley MBA curriculum prepared me for success in my new role because it didn't restrict me in the courses that I had to take.”

“Berkeley Board Fellows gave me the opportunity to sit on the board of a non-profit in the Bay Area. This experience helped prepare me to present to, influence, and work with executives within an organization.”

“My CPG internship experience at Nestlé gave me the experience I needed in order to truly understand what a brand management role entails and gave me the confidence to know that this is what I have passion for. It reinforced that I had made the right choice in careers post-MBA, and it set me up to be successful in landing a role at one of the best CPG companies.”
