Keith Frierson
BA Supply Chain Management
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles - Auburn Hills, MI

“You must learn the business culture and sharpen your business acumen to truly thrive in any given business environment, and your habits that you establish now will carry over into the work experience after school.”

Sarah Hurwich
BA Finance
Royal Bank of Canada - Toronto, ON

“I work within Investor & Treasury Services as a summer analyst. Working at Royal Bank has given me the amazing chance to learn about all the services the bank has to offer and make an impact within my team by coordinating various projects with the overarching goal of minimizing operational risk. I loved being able to work with people with different perspectives, as it created a wholesome learning experience.”

Sam Mioduszewski
BA Supply Chain Management
Hess - Houston, TX

“So far in my internship I have learned an incredible amount about drilling and completions, and all the steps and processes that go into drilling a well. Hess also taught me the importance of becoming 'Lean.' Through multiple seminars and trainings, I can see how having this Lean mindset can drastically change the efficiency of different processes within the business.”

Amy Cao
BA Supply Chain Management
TJX Cos. - Framingham, MA

“Anyone can buy fashion or even have style, but to combine business and having an eye for product is something that needs to be taught. Here, they teach you how to think and act like a merchant. My role is to determine, based on previous sales as well as strategy and plans going forward, how I can allocate goods in stores in a way that will impact business.”

Mora Moxuanzi Li
MS Accounting
Deloitte - Detroit, MI

“My favorite experience was to build networks with professionals who were able to assist with my performance management. Having an opportunity to work with clients from different industries also helped me leverage my strengths.”

Donald W. Petty II
MBA
GE - Atlanta, GA

“If you fail, fail fast. Learn from your mistakes, pivot, and develop a great product/solution for your customers.”

Zetian Zhou
BA Supply Chain Management
General Motors - Warren, MI

“I learn new things every day. My favorite experience was my first time contacting suppliers by myself.”

Yusef Tahawi
BA Supply Chain Management

“I've learned that marketing is very fast paced with a quick turnaround. My favorite experience was joining a summer solstice photo shoot for our social channels. Driving the new 2018 GMC Terrain Denali through woods and on beaches throughout Michigan was a nice change.”

Yoodong Hwang
BA Finance
Meijer - Grand Rapids, MI

“My project is based on learning about vendor, carrier, and customer relationships. I learned that putting in the time to get to know your co-workers and build trust with them is really important for the experience you want to have.”

Valentino Bernardi
BA Finance
General Motors - Detroit, MI

“My favorite moment thus far was being able to attend a networking session on a yacht that went up and down the Detroit River. The session was with some highly respected executives at GM who had a lot of advice and great lessons for young professionals.”

Utkarsh Sachaan
MS Business Analytics
IHS Markit -

“My internship in predictive analytics/machine learning enabled me to look at mammoth volumes of data focusing on developing an efficient product. We are learning data wrangling, modeling, and presentation. My favorite part of the experience is working on a innovative idea and presenting it to the company president as part of a competition between all interns globally.”

Tyler Nelson
BA Marketing
Stryker - Portage, MI

“My favorite part is being given tasks that matter. I know each day I come into work that I will be able to do something that will benefit the company. For example, one of my projects was sent out to the entire internal and external marketing and sales teams.”

Snigdha Tiwari
MBA
Sears Holdings - Chicago, IL

“I learnt to adapt to change. Things don't always go as planned, but finding the way around and being open to new challenges is the key.”

Sean Mulvihill

“My favorite experience has been working with the autonomous vehicle. It is exciting to work so close to the product and to see the process a new vehicle goes through prior to launching it.”

Samantha Terrian
BA Supply Chain Management

“Each day I spend time working with different functions – suppliers, purchasers, ergonomics and safety group, and so much more – and see how important the relationship between the departments is. The way they communicate with one another is key to making sure vehicles are produced on time and the business as a whole runs efficiently and effectively.”
