What surprised you most about Marshall?
I was most surprised by the diversity of backgrounds, both culturally and professionally. Everyone has something unique to share and I have learned so much about my classmates in such a short amount of time.

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
Outside the classroom activities (i.e. clubs, recruiting, networking) take up A LOT of time. There are a ton of options available so it is helpful to have an idea of what mix you want in terms of social/professional involvement.

What leadership positions do you hold at Marshall?
AVP of Investment Banking - American Finance Association, AVP of VCIC - Entrepreneur & Venture Management Association, USC Marshall MBA Ambassador

Favorite USC Marshall Experience:
The tailgates!
