While applying to college, Brendan Frank '18, MBA '19, knew that he wanted to pursue a combined degree, and Quinnipiac's Dual-Degree (3+1) program easily stood out from the competition.
“Every other combined BS/MBA I researched was a five-year program,” Frank said. “Being able to complete a program in four years was really important to me.”
Another program strength for Frank was the array of internships available to him. After interning with the Rockland Boulders, a minor-league baseball team, Frank is exploring opportunities in ad agencies and consumer packaged goods companies.
“I could see myself working in the sports world, but I could very well see myself working in another area,” he said. “I like being able to compare experiences.”
Internships and rigorous academics haven't deterred Frank from serving on the executive board of the Quinnipiac chapter of the American Marketing Association. He also studied abroad in London, where he learned firsthand just how much the United States influences world attitudes, trends and markets.
“Whether I was in London or somewhere else in Europe, there were always news headlines from the U.S., talk of U.S. politics and American music playing,” Frank said. “It really opened my eyes to how connected the world is.”
