Minor: Entrepreneurship /Education Empowerment
Hometown: Miami, Florida
Hi everyone! I am so excited that you are considering attending Ross! My name is Nicole, and I am currently a sophomore concentrating in strategy and minoring in entrepreneurship & education empowerment! I am from Miami, Florida but decided to attend Michigan after being able to fly in for Ross All-Access Weekend! Having the opportunity to meet student ambassadors and hear about their experiences while taking seminars from world renown staff was surreal, and I am so humbled to now have the opportunity to be in the shoes of an ambassador! Despite only having experienced a few months here at Ross, I can genuinely say that Ross has an unmatched business program with a top-tier college experience. As a first-generation student with limited exposure to business, I was really concerned about being one step behind from my classmates. However, I can wholeheartedly testify that has not been the case! The collaborative environment fostered by Ross accompanied by the unparalleled resources has allowed me to fuel my passion for positive business!
One of the unique aspects of Ross is their plethora of valuable experiences and organizations beyond the classroom! My first semester, I was able to join APEX Consulting, Michigan Investment Group, and Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business Fraternity. In just one semester I was able to provide pro-bono consulting services to a fashion start-up, perform fundamental and quantitative analysis to present multifaceted investment strategies, and network with upperclassmen about their professional and social experiences. In addition to this, I was able to meet with my academic advisor and the career development office biweekly, as well as participate in a Deloitte case competition! With this abundance of support and insight, I was able to successfully network and recruit to land my dream internship this summer, a first-year analyst role at McKinsey!
After just a short period of time, I can truly call Michigan home! I cannot wait for the rest of this journey! Do not hesitate to reach out, I would love to follow the foot-steps of upperclassmen and staff in helping other students find their way both professionally and personally!
What do you enjoy doing outside of class time?: I love to karaoke, dance, and have recently started taking trapeze classes!
