"There have been countless times where I’ve learned something incredible about one of my classmates that I would’ve never known because of the humility and lack of ego across the cohort. This has left a profound impact on me and speaks to the quality of people enrolled in the program."

Reflections

I wanted to be surrounded by successful individuals who prioritize humility and decency. I knew I would find that at Fuqua because of the program's tenets of of IQ, EQ, and DQ. I've been joined in this cohort by individuals who are more than classmates - they are friends and career models who have set a high standard for success, selfless leadership, and character.

Before Fuqua

I started my role as an investment banking associate one month before starting the WEMBA program. In my role, I perform financial (including valuation) analyses and industry/market research, prepare marketing materials for M&A processes, and aid due diligence efforts with sell-side and buy-side M&A clients.

After Fuqua

I plan to continue working in investment banking. I believe the MBA curriculum has provided me with a well-rounded education that will allow me to be a more effective advisor to clients in the future.

5 Tips for Working in Teams

  1. Be empathetic—everyone not only has school obligations, but work obligations, family obligations, etc.
  2. Be invested in your teammates’ successes inside and outside the classroom.
  3. Always be willing to teach your teammates or have the humility to ask your teammates for help. You are all in this together.
  4. Overcommunicate and plan ahead.
  5. Your teammates all come from different backgrounds and careers—they can be wonderful resources as you think about your post-grad career.
