Student Business Administration at USC Marshall School of Business
I’m a senior, studying Business Administration with an emphasis in management, at USC Marshall School of Business. My aim is to pursue a career in hospitality management as a General Manager. I took advantage of the opportunities we have at USC to network with industry leaders and joined the Hospitality Industry Project Club, Operations Management Association, and ALPFA. At Hospitality Industry Project, we take Las Vegas trips every year to take behind the scene tours of hotels, casinos, and nightclubs. Last Spring, we toured Wynn, Venetian, Cosmopolitan, TAO, LAVO, and Marquee. During the trip I had the opportunity to meet many of the industry leaders and learn from their precious experiences. In order to expand my leadership abilities, I served as the marketing director of ALPFA, where we hosted networking events with companies such as KPMG, Deloitte, and PWC. I currently work at a hotel’s front desk. This is a huge opportunity for me to gain experience in the hotel industry. I am also in the process of applying for the Hospitality Internship Program with MGM Resorts International next summer.
