Previous Degree: B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering, University of California, Los Angeles

About Me: "I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from UCLA in 2012. There, I developed an interest in consumer-based web product management after I took a course in product strategy that introduced me to the strategic concepts companies employ to keep their customers engaged in their services and developments. I have held positions at LinkedIn, TripAdvisor, and Cisco Systems. My goal is to develop and market products that millions of consumers will use in their daily lives. Upon the completion of my degree, I hope to join a consumer-based internet firm as a product manager."

Why I Chose the M.E.M.: "After the conclusion of my computer science studies, I had the technical knowledge to join the internet industry, but lacked the business acumen to pursue my goal of becoming a product manager. I joined the M.E.M. to better position myself for a career in product management. The required engineering courses allowed me to continue to develop my programming abilities, while the courses in marketing, strategy for internet businesses, and entrepreneurship taught me the business skills needed to succeed in my desired career path."
