A powerful network

In Their Words

Cracking the code

Tenia Harrison, far right, smiles with her IT case competition team members and faculty adviser Kiku Jones, center. School of Business students have many opportunities to get involved with both on-campus and national competitions.

“My proudest moment at Quinnipiac was being selected to be a part of an IT case competition. It was a completely nerve-racking experience because I had to present in front of a group of IT professionals, but I overcame my fears. Despite not winning, just knowing that I did not give up and persevered in that moment will always make me proud.”

“When I landed my internship in China, it solidified for me that all of my hard work was paying off and getting me somewhere. In the summer of 2016, I had two internships, one as an international marketing intern for Tasly Pharmaceuticals through Quinnipiac’s international business program and another as a clinical information systems intern for Dartmouth Hitchcock Memorial Hospital. I am excited for my upcoming merchandising internship this summer with TJX Companies.”
