Prior to attending Duke University, I was an undergraduate student at Northeastern University where I majored in mathematics and business administration with a concentration in finance. My prior professional experiences have included working in both the financial services and aerospace industries. Through these academic and professional experiences, I have quickly learned that traditional and emerging business roles are becoming increasingly quantitative and business professionals are focused on how data analytics can enhance business decisions to increase stakeholder value. Understanding these trends was instrumental in my decision to enroll at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business as an MQM student.
