“My team really broadened my way of thinking and handling different people and their ideas. I learned to respect everyone’s opinion and how to compromise. We had disagreements and hard conversations, but at the end the day we learned from each other.”

Why I Chose Fuqua

I wanted to attend an institution that would best prepare me academically for my future and provide me with the greatest opportunity to succeed in the business world. My long-term goal is to move back home and help my father manage and improve the running of our family business. I knew enhancing my business skills were important, as I needed to know how to handle the many departments of the business. I also wanted to be able to demonstrate management and leadership skills in my career, which I knew I could accomplish from doing the MMS program.

Before Fuqua

I worked as an industrial engineering intern, where I got the chance to improve processes by using different quality control methods.

After Fuqua

I would like to pursue a career in supply chain and logistics by starting with a good rotational program to hone my skills, and then focus on implementing the different supply chain and logistics concepts in various industries.
