Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, Brett Church is pursuing an MBA/JD dual degree in Law and Management.
“I knew coming in that I wanted to practice corporate law, and the complementary MBA and JD degrees offered by this School of Management program has helped me reach my goal.
“The JD program has taught me how to analyze problems and present my findings clearly and succinctly, while the MBA program exposed me to the issues my future clients will face, enabling me to provide them with more than my legal knowledge. The MBA program also increased my financial literacy such that I feel confident discussing complex business concepts with clients and associates. The fact that the school is in Boston—steps away from Fenway Park—made the experience even sweeter.”
Brett will be joining the Business Law department at Goodwin Procter LLP in Boston after graduation.
Originally from Blue Bell, Penn., outside of Philadelphia, Elyse chose Boston University’s MBA/MS in Television Management because it “combines my love of business and marketing with my passion for the media field. It will help me obtain knowledge in two years that would have taken me many years of work experience to gain.” Elyse had worked in the entertainment industry for five years before beginning her MBA/MS degree. Boston University held a unique appeal for her because it’s a major metropolitan city as well as a hub for academia.
“Boston University was the right choice for me because it is giving me the opportunity to learn from experienced marketers and professionals with many years of accomplishments in the media field.
“My business knowledge has grown exponentially, not only in marketing, but also in IT, strategy, and organizational behavior. The MBA/MS in TV Management is helping me to reach my goals of becoming a marketing manager in the entertainment industry by giving me a solid understanding of current integrated marketing practices and a deeper comprehension of how these practices relate to the media field.”
After graduation, Elyse hopes to work as a senior marketing manager at a major media network. “I am prepared to utilize the marketing practices I have gleaned, plus my greater insight into the media industry, to successfully lead my company into whatever the future holds.
