“I’m a career accelerator transitioning from sales to marketing. I know Carlson will give me the tools and the professional network I need to be successful”

My story

After spending my career in sales, I discovered that my true passion was for marketing. I knew the Carlson School’s Brand Enterprise program would be a great place to learn and apply marketing frameworks to solve business challenges at top companies.

Why Carlson?

As an undergraduate alum I have seen the power of a Carlson education firsthand. The curriculum gave me a solid foundation to understand the business world and helped me to become an effective employee immediately upon entering the workforce. The career center gave me all the tools I needed to best present myself to recruiters and opened my eyes to the vast opportunities available to Carlson students. At the Carlson School I am among highly motivated and accomplished students learning rigorous curriculum from top-notch faculty. I know that Carlson can give me a business foundation and professional network that I can’t get anywhere else.
