We interviewed graduate students at the Zicklin School of Business to learn more about them and why they enrolled. Here’s what they told us.

Area of interest: Finance

Previous jobs/careers: Opera singer, operations manager at a tech startup   

Favorite classes: Investment Analysis with Prof. Xi Dong, Strategy and Competitive Advantage with Prof. Helaine Korn, Strategic Business Communication with Prof. Nora Gold  

What surprised her: I thought an MBA program would be a rough-and-tumble, competitive environment, but instead we’re genuinely excited to share our successes and help one another.

Previous job/career: Administrative assistant at the Lyceum Kennedy French-American School  

Why he chose the Zicklin School: It was always my dream to do a master’s degree, and the Zicklin School stood out in my research. When I mentioned the school, former students had only good things to say about it, and work colleagues always had a positive response.  

Favorite classes: They all have a soft spot in my heart, but right now I’m really learning a lot from Consumer Behavior with Prof. Elyse Kane. I’m learning to make better decisions as a consumer, which makes me a better person.
