Meet Georgetown McDonough’s MBA Class of 2019

 

Jennifer Rose Schwartz 

Georgetown University, McDonough School of Business 

Describe yourself in 15 words or less: Hard-working, creative thinker who loves to learn and believes that ideas can change the world

Hometown: New York, NY

Fun Fact About Yourself: I was a child actor who appeared on the soap opera One Life To Life, as well as episodes of Saturday Night Live and other shows.

Undergraduate School and Major: 

Rutgers University

BA in Economics & Journalism

Employers and Job Titles Since Graduation:

Finn Partners: Senior Publicist, Publicist

FOX Business Network: Associate Producer, Booker, Production Assistant

CNN: Production Assistant

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: As a producer at FOX Business Network, I secured interviews with Fortune 500 CEOs, conducted phone interviews with guests prior to on-air appearances, and wrote questions that were used in the live shows. There have been many incredible people that I’ve had the privilege of working with, including Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn, and Elon Musk. Speaking with a variety of executives has given me a broad view of leadership and taught me to look for new ways of doing business.

Looking back on your experience, what is one piece of advice would you give to future business school applicants?  Use a stopwatch when studying for the GMAT. If you can answer the question, but not in the allotted time, then you will likely have timing issues on the test. Practice pacing yourself from the very beginning.

What was the key factor that led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA and why was it so important to you? During the school exploration and application process, the term “fit” is often used. The first time I visited campus, I could really see myself here. The more people I met in the community – alumni, current students, professors, and even other admitted students – the more Georgetown felt like where I belong.

What would success look like to you after your first year of business school? After my first year of business school, I hope to have strengthened my quantitative skills, expanded my network, stepped outside my comfort zone, made some new friends, and secured an internship for the summer.
