I can honestly say that applying to and attending Richmond was one of the best choices that I have ever made. I accidentally came across the university looking for a school within the United States, but later realised that the experience, the professional network built and the events later in my life could only have started from Richmond.
In the MBA program I learned how to magnify my strengths and truly gain an international perspective in Business. Focusing on marketing, I met professor Nastaran who challenge our MBA program to be clear, consistent and creative; all of which have stuck with me through my career thus far.
After graduation, I joined on full time with the company I did my internship with called Anything But Salads, a raw vegan health and organic company located in Hong Kong, China. I joined this company as a Chief Marketing Officer, where I leveraged my skillset learned from the MBA program. Honestly every module contributed to my success within the company. Ranging from international marketing concepts such as creating a strategy for “go-to-markets”, project management working with various teams, corporate finance and organizational management. I had then an option to either stay with the newly acquired firm, explore Hong Kong for more opportunities or start my own venture.
I am currently consulting individuals and SMEs, helping them with positioning on the global marketplace. I highly suggest any prospect students to not miss the opportunity to attend this resourceful university. Live, learn and everything in between.
