The Graduate Programs Office is preparing to welcome the incoming MBA Class of 2015 this coming August during MBA Advantage. We are excited to gain a new group of fresh faces within the walls of the School of Management. We are sharing this excitement by posting short profiles throughout the summer introducing the incoming MBA Class of 2015. We hope you will take the time to get to know our newest UB MBA’s as we share some of their experiences and interests.
Michelle Lund: Class of 2015
Hometown: Buffalo, NY
Current City: Buffalo, NY
Graduated from: Ohio State
Major: Marketing & Minor in Fashion Merchandising
Why UB? It has a great program and it will give me the connections to stay in Buffalo!
Why an MBA? Further my business sense, leadership and knowledge so that I can excel and bring expertise in the workplace upon graduation.
Summer plans: I will continue working at my full time job through mid-July. At that point I plan on doing some traveling around the US and/or Europe before returning to school full-time! I am a Marketing Specialist at Novum Medical Products. It is a small medical equipment company which has given me the opportunity to touch upon a lot of different aspects of marketing (market research, product positioning/branding, social media, SEO, design, etc.)!
Something you want to learn: I would love to learn to surf, because I love the beach and the ocean!
Someone you’d like to meet: I would love to meet Audrey Hepburn, as she lived an admirable life.
Someone you’d like to have as a mentor: I would choose some sort of fitness guru as my mentor, since it is the one area of my life I can’t seem to stay motivated in!
The hardest thing you’ve ever done: The hardest thing I have ever done is run a half marathon, because I DESPISE running.
Fun Fact: Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. I have been to 10 cities around the US in the past year, and hope to get to Europe this summer!
