Why I Chose Fuqua

I chose to attend Fuqua because of its academic prestige and the opportunity to enroll in a business foundations program for individuals without much work experience. So far, I’ve learned a great deal about career opportunities available to me through Fuqua and the MMS program, as well as improved my working knowledge of real-world applications of concepts like accounting and statistics.

Before Fuqua

Because I went to Duke for undergrad, I was aware of the MMS program and the opportunity to learn more about business before officially entering the workforce, which was my biggest driving factor for my decision to pursue an MMS degree.

After Fuqua

After graduation, I will be working as an analyst in the asset management branch of JP Morgan in New York City.
