“I enjoy working. Carlson’s Enterprise Program enables students to stay fresh and sharp professionally by working on live projects for various companies.”
I began working at General Mills in 2009, straight out of undergrad. I started my career in a finance leadership development, rotational program. My experience primarily included working in the International segment on long range strategic planning and foreign exchange, and the Organic/All Natural foods division in a marketing-finance role. The marketing-finance role is what sparked my b-school interest because I wanted to further my development as a general manager.
I enjoy working. Carlson’s Enterprise Program enables students to stay fresh and sharp professionally by working on live projects for various companies. The Enterprise has allowed me to apply frameworks learned in class, as well as knowledge gained from past experiences. Additionally, the Carlson culture really resonated with me during my b-school search. Students and faculty are accomplished, committed and approachable. I believe this incredible community is achieved via the small class size and dedication to intellectual conversation and debate.
Living in the Twin Cities
For me, the Twin Cities is the perfect size because residents enjoy the benefits of a “big” city - award-winning chefs and restaurants, mixologists expanding cocktail considerations, professional sporting events on every front – and the community feel of a neighborhood - walks around the lakes, grabbing coffee at your favorite café down the street, etc… I really feel that the Twin Cities has the best of both worlds if you invest the time to explore it.
