For those of you who may not be able to visit campus before submitting your application, or would just like another way to connect with members of the Booth community, participating in our online chats is a great option. We host chats on a variety of topics, like entrepreneurship at Booth or timely admissions Q&A chats. We try to put our students in front of you, because no one else can tell their story better than they can.
Last week, we hosted a chat on the topic of marketing at Booth. In one interaction, Miriam Droller, second-year student and co-chair of the Marketing Group, poignantly addressed a prospective student’s question about marketing at a school perceived so strongly also in finance.
“… I am a second year going into brand management and I have taken ‘Investments and Corporation Finance’ and I plan to take ‘Cases in Financial Management’ in the spring. Particularly when it comes to marketing, having expertise in other disciplines is very important. As a marketer, you often act as a general manager, working with other departments such as finance. Understanding the finances of your company as a brand manager can help you succeed in a marketing career … I absolutely love the opportunity to take classes across a wide variety of disciplines and gain expertise in areas which I know will help me as I embark upon a marketing career.”
We will be hosting upcoming chats on finance and the admissions process, so stay tuned!
All the best,
