For Jenna Braca ’17, MBA ’18, gaining global perspective was central to both her undergraduate and graduate academic experiences. In 2015, the accelerated dual-degree (3+1) student completed a marketing internship at Tasly Pharmaceuticals in Tianjin, China, followed by an internship as a credit analyst at TD Bank in New York in Summer 2016.
She also studied abroad in Florence, Italy, and traveled to 13 other countries in Spring 2016.
”I had the opportunity to travel to four continents,” Braca said. ”I've managed to learn so much about the world and myself.”
An internship at Quinnipiac’s Central European Institute in Fall 2017 enabled Braca to continue working in cross-cultural environments while she earned her MBA. There, she utilized her creative problem-solving skills to help Hungarian companies enter the U.S. market.
”I really enjoyed my time with the CEI, and I’m excited to continue my work with the program,” she said.
As she finishes her accelerated dual-degree (3+1) program, Braca is confident that all of her professional growth and exposure will unlock career opportunities, both at home and abroad.
”I know that I will be able to use my experiences working with international companies in my future career.”
