Reflections

One of the goals I hope to achieve along with my MBA is to transition from the public sector to private industry. I have been working with Lisa Schwartz, my career coach from the Career Management Center, to explore various functions, industries, and companies to plan for my post-graduation career. The Career Management Center has been extremely helpful in sharing alumni contacts, tips, and resources, which makes this transition much easier and more achievable.

Before Fuqua

I’m currently working at Deloitte as a Senior Consultant in Federal Practice. My responsibilities vary from project to project and include solving complex financial and accounting problems, business process re-engineering, and implementing financial systems for federal government clients.

After Fuqua

I would like to work in strategy consulting either within a consulting firm or a Fortune 500 company.

Advice

Everyone you encounter—staff, faculty, and your classmates—has something to offer. I highly recommend taking the time to get to know each individual during your residency and make it a point to build and maintain those relationships. While classwork and learning are critical aspects of the program, you should also attend Fuqua Fridays, Duke basketball games, and other events with your classmates in order to maximize your Fuqua experience. I also recommend getting in touch with the Career Management Center early on because career preparation is more of a marathon than a sprint!
