After graduating with a degree in Biotechnology in 2006, I went on to pursue an MBA with a concentration in investment and finance. My reason for pursuing an MBA is so I can combine my knowledge of Biotech with my knowledge of investment and finance with the thought of working as a financial analyst for a biotech company. I am confident that when I graduate with my MBA in 2008, I will find a job that will allow me to combine my two areas of study.
“My experience at PSU was exactly how I had pictured college to be, plus more. I originally came to PSU because of the brand new science building that had just been re-done, and soon after I learned how helpful the student-faculty relations were. Instantly professors called me by name and not a number. They showed interest in me and my goals. Anytime I needed extra help, they made themselves 100% available for assistance, and some even gave their home phone numbers! The core science classes for biotech trained me to stand confident at job interviews and have a competitive edge in the professional work force. Overall it was a great experience.”
“Plymouth State University is a small college with Biotech as a very new major where only a few students are involved in it. I think having this major instead of biology, chemistry or anything….just helped me to be more marketable in the job world. I definitely feel like whatever I learned as a biotech major at PSU is really helpful right now at my job that I do as a Clinical Research Assistant at Brigham and Women’s Hospital because of having that exposure in biology, chemistry and technology.”
