Get to Know Maggie

"Originally from Los Angeles, CA, I completed my undergrad in Business Information Management and worked in the Insurance industry for the last five years under Product Management and IT.

I chose the Tepper School for the small class size, strong alumni network, and quantitative curriculum. When I visited Tepper during Diversity Weekend, interacting with the current students confirmed that this was the right fit for me. As a prospective, every student I interacted with went out of their way to connect with me and answer my questions, and I have experienced the same when connecting with alumni now. As a current student, the small class size helped me get to know a lot of my classmates, build close relationships, and continue to expand my network."

"For my MBA, I wanted to have a college town experience with activities I can take part in with my classmates. While Pittsburgh was a big move from the West Coast, I have enjoyed the changing seasons, outdoor activities, and hanging out with friends over a good meal and some laughs. If you can, I definitely recommend attending Diversity Weekend!"
