Allison Wood is a rising senior with a double major in Marketing Management and Management with the Management Consulting and Analytics (MCA) option

Company: IBM

Position: Solutions Sales intern in the IBM Summit Program

I chose Management Consulting & Analytics because it provides me with the foundation I need to not only communicate with those in the business world but also peer into their business problems and develop solutions to those issues.

The Management - MCA option has taught me crucial problem-solving skills and has allowed me to develop as a collaborator. I have been able to apply these skills to any area, any time, and in any business scenario that I have been faced with throughout my internship. Thanks to MCA, I know how to communicate with those at any level of a business, and I am able to think critically to assess their business needs.

After graduation, I hope to land in a consultative sales position, or any business consulting role. Within the first 5 years post-graduation, I hope to go back to school for my MBA as well. Thankfully, the MCA major has given me the foundation to pursue both of those goals!

We are very proud of you Allison - keep up the great work!

Collaborate. Innovate. Integrate.
