The M&T Bank Center for Women and Business was a home away from home for Rachel Sin ’22, MBA ’23, a place to grow and a place to learn.

The 4+1 finance major has helped promote the center at various events. Her role has developed into a student engagement intern where she has had the opportunity to manage the center’s social media accounts and podcasts.

“The M&T Bank Center for Women and Business has left a lasting impact on my time here at Quinnipiac by offering me a tremendous number of opportunities and bringing me closer to an incredibly inspirational team of women. I have learned the importance of teamwork because we would not be able to get anything done without each other,” Sin said.

One of the highlights of her time at the center was helping to develop and execute Sip and Shop, an event for women of color in the community to showcase their small businesses and network with like-minded individuals.

In addition to her work at M&T Bank Center for Women and Business, Sin completed an internship in the last summer as a financial planning and analysis intern for Hearst Television. Her work consisted of financial reporting and performing analysis functions for all of Hearst’s television and radio stations.

Sin’s journey continues at Deloitte, a business and management consulting company. Sin said she is grateful for the technical knowledge and skills she has developed at Quinnipiac to help her succeed after graduation. With her experience from her coursework and on-campus jobs, she has grown to become a more well-rounded person.

“Quinnipiac places a heavy emphasis on life after college, which has helped me better understand what happens after graduation,” said Sin. “The School of Business puts its students through a career development course to help them make a resume, get interview prep and utilize resources to get an internship. That course was really beneficial to me and point me towards the right direction during my sophomore year. I think students have all of the resources they need to succeed, we just have to find the ones we need.”

Sin encourages the incoming Quinnipiac Class of 2027 to never let mistakes hold you back.

“You will encounter obstacles but never let them stop you from being your best self,” she urged. “It can feel overwhelming in the moment but plan to move forward and execute that plan.”
