Duke Fuqua MBA student blogger Paige Swofford

I’m pursuing a joint degree at Duke, combining a Master of Environmental Management (MEM) with an MBA that includes a concentration in Energy and the Environment. During the three-year program, I have completed two internships, working for National Grid and NextEra Energy. I chose Fuqua for its strong energy curriculum and the ability to connect with energy-focused faculty, students, and alumni across the broader Duke community.

At Fuqua, I am one of the co-presidents of the MBA Energy Club, and I previously served as the co-president of the MEM/MBA Club. I am also a career fellow, providing guidance to first-year MBA students interested in recruiting for internships in the energy sector. I love helping other students learn about energy, build passion and curiosity around the challenges the industry is facing, and develop the skills needed to help solve those challenges.

I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, and completed my undergraduate degree in business at UNC-Chapel Hill. Prior to returning to graduate school, I worked in operations and product management for a financial services company.
