M.S. in Technology Commercialization and Entrepreneurship

Professionally speaking, I am a licensed real estate agent with an in-depth knowledge of the processes centered around home ownership and rentals. As a co-term student in the Lally School, before entering into their Technology Commercialization & Entrepreneurship program, I was an undergraduate student studying finance and supply chain management. The student-oriented faculty helped make for a smooth transition into graduate study. I appreciated how this school made me feel valued and appreciated. The small classroom setting allowed professors to get to know their students on an individual basis. In my free time, I enjoy eating.

M.S. in Management, Ambassador Coordinator and Mentor

I completed my undergraduate education in December of 2017 at Rensselaer. When I came to RPI, I declared strictly as a mathematics major; however, after I was exposed to the Lally School, I knew I wanted to declare a dual major with management. While pursing my undergraduate degree I was able to compete in multiple business analytics competitions, develop myself professionally, and learn through real-world experiences. My passion for the business world led me to pursue my master's degree in management and concentrate in finance to keep the mathematical side of my undergraduate useful, while expanding on the management elements of my undergraduate experience that I enjoyed. I chose the Lally School to continue my education because of the collaborative learning environment, as well as the leadership opportunities available. Some interesting facts about me are that I played field hockey for RPI and that I am obsessed with coffee.

Master’s in Business Administration

Before joining the MBA program at the Lally School, I worked at CommerceHub, a local (and global) software company. My role at CommerceHub was to foster alignment between business and technology stakeholders, typically toward objectives related to product development. This role required a dynamic combination of technical, interpersonal, and domain-specific skills.

I saw the Lally MBA program as an opportunity to bolster these skills and invest in my long-term career growth. This focus on personal development has motivated me to explore the world-class opportunities all around Rensselear Polytechnic Institute. In one week, I attended different conversations featuring a former FCC Chairman, two National Medal of Science recipients, and an electroacoustic flutist.

When I am not hanging around campus, you can find me playing golf or listening to Chicago Cubs baseball.

M.S. in Business Analytics

My undergraduate major coupled with my internship experiences led me to the field of analytics and technology-oriented decision-making. After I graduated in May 2017, I worked in an artificial intelligence based decision-making platform startup firm as an associate product manager, where I got to experience the entire analytics-life cycle on live projects. Throughout my time there, I continued to invest in my competency stack by working on my functional domain of business and economics and developing analytical skills to effectively support it. I chose the MSBAN program at Lally because it provided me with just the right intersection and balance of technology with business applications. The program has a great course structure, with a lot of scope and flexibility, for such a fast-paced and growing field. Lally School of Management has great leadership and entrepreneurial resources with an engaging and interactive learning environment. An interesting fact about me is that I used to play golf and this is something I want to revisit and start again!
