Lauren Baywol (BA Marketing ’15) loves the sense of community that the Broad College of Business provides.
“I chose Broad for the opportunities and the people. There is an overwhelming sense of everyone—including your classmates, professors, and advisors—genuinely wanting you to succeed and doing whatever they can to help you. There are so many different ways to get involved, and each opportunity provides you with a different way to set yourself apart when pursuing employment for summer internships or after graduation.”
Baywol was accepted into the Broad College as a general management major. The flexibility of the general management curriculum enabled her to take upper-tier classes that developed her interest in marketing and inspired her to change majors. In the fall, she plans to join either the Marketing Association or Marketing Mix.
Through her involvement in the General Management Association, she has gained valuable chances to network.
“It’s been a great opportunity to meet other Broad students and business professionals and gain insights about internships and future career opportunities,” Baywol said.
This summer, Baywol will be a store management intern for Macy’s—an internship she gained through the Lear Career Services Center’s résumé workshops and MySpartanCareer. While completing her undergraduate studies, she is strongly considering dual enrolling in the Master of Science in Marketing Research program next spring.
In the end, it is the sense of teamwork that Baywol values most about the Broad College.
“I love how you never feel like you are competing against your peers,” she said. “Instead, you feel like you are all part of one team that collectively will make a huge impact out in the real world.”
