After graduating in 2011 with a B.A. in English and minors in Business and Psychology, Samantha plans to pursue opportunities in Public Relations and Corporate Communications. While Samantha originally planned to use her degree to become a high school English teacher, she found the Business Minor Program opened doors to areas of which she had not previously envisioned. Courses in accounting, finance, and marketing and life lessons from the program instructors allowed her to gain the knowledge necessary to explore the business environment. Today Samantha is employed as an account executive with Weber Shandwick, a global PR firm based in New York City, focusing on corporate client relations. Samantha also plans to continue with a masters program in public relations and corporate communications.

Graduating in May 2012 with a B.S. in Environmental Engineering, Andrew already interned with SEI Investments while gaining experience in private banking, investment management and advisory, and wealth management. A recent project offered Andrew the opportunity to assess competitors’ offerings and recommend to SEI how to design beter offers for their customers. “The Business Minor was perfect for teaching me how to act in a corporate environment. At SEI, I occasionally presented before my peers, managers, and executives. The Business Minor allowed me to practice my presentation skills so that presenting has become second nature to me. The Business Minor also taught me how to contribute effectively to a team and help lead a team to success. The Business Minor really bridged the gap between real life, academics, and the corporate world for me.” Andrew recently signed with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and is doing Technology Consulting for their Banking and Capital Markets group in New York City
