As a project for one of my classes, I conducted a marketing plan for the company I work for, analyzing its target markets, products and advertising strategy.
Being a working mother and wife, the ADVANCE accelerated degree program at D'Youville gives me the opportunity not only to have a full-time job but also to achieve my goals of getting a degree on a flexible schedule. I have been lucky enough to be exposed to some very smart and creative fellow students and faculty. They have allowed me to understand different points of view when it comes to business decisions and issues.
Currently, I am the President of the DYC Student Management Association in which I have had the opportunity to meet other students in various business programs and I truly hope that the relationships I have built while at D'Youville will stay with me throughout the rest of my life.
As for my full-time job, I am presently the office manager and accountant for Solid Surface Acrylics, a manufacturer of solid surface table tops. Because it's a small company, I am exposed to many different departments within the company. This allows me to understand the business in a more holistic manner and enables me to apply all of the things that I am learning at D'Youville. In fact, during one of my courses, I conducted a marketing plan for Solid Surface Acrylics. The project allowed me to learn more about the target markets, products and advertising strategy for the company.
My goal is to assist the company I work for to grow and become more profitable. I am confident that my degree will help me fulfill my dream of being a key player in this company. I hope to stay with this company for a number of years and be able to grow professionally.
