Q: How has the Part-Time MBA program influenced your career plans?

A:  My interests have evolved since I started the program. I've been interested in healthcare since I was an undergraduate student at Northeastern and I currently work at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, so I assumed a career in healthcare would be my future.

But since coming here for my MBA, I've discovered that I have much broader interests. My accounting class coursework reminded me how much I like math, and I definitely want to stay involved with information technology—I love data.

I may stay in healthcare, but by taking classes in accounting, finance, and international business, I've realized that I could find fulfillment in other fields as well.

Q: Has the MBA program helped you in other ways?

A: I'm known to be a quiet person. I've always been hesitant to voice my opinions because I'm afraid I might not have the perfect answer. But my goal is to become a manger who inspires and motivates other people, so I have to overcome that.

I chose Northeastern because I wanted a program that would break me out of my shell. This program emphasizes class participation and group projects, which has forced me to voice my opinions and make classroom presentations. As a result, I've become much more confident, and I'm proud of that.

Q: What attracted you to D'Amore-McKim?

A: My mentor at Dana Farber earned her MBA at Northeastern, and she is so self-assured, knowledgeable, and a great communicator. She told me that the program helped her become the professional she is today.

I also have more than 20 family members who have gone to Northeastern. My brother graduated three years ago with a degree in behavioral neuroscience and my father earned his master's degree in scientific leadership, with a focus on project management, this year.

Since I had attended Northeastern as an undergraduate, I knew what a great job they do of molding and grooming students. Before I went on co-op, I took a course devoted specifically to professional skills, such as interviewing for a job, writing resumes, and handling yourself in the professional world. I felt so far ahead of my peers at other schools, and I knew that the MBA program would provide me with the same level of career services.
