Student Spotlight

"Cross - Cultural."

Jenna Berglund, MBA Student

After earning my Bachelor degree in Finance accompanied with a minor in Spanish, I felt more than prepared for the business world. The University of South Alabama taught me skills and knowledge designed for one to excel in any work environment. Although I was ready to start my career and finally start letting that hard work pay off, I wanted to continue my education and applied for the MBA program. I am now currently in my second year and will be graduating in May 2015. I not only find the MBA program beneficial for my career, but for myself as well. I have met friends and professors that have opened several doors for me and are always there for advice.
Coming out of college can be a scary time for most, but the University of South Alabama offers plenty of resources that help guide you into your niche. I plan on taking full advantage of these resources for the next year as graduation approaches. The one thing that has always stood out to me is the willingness of Professors and staff to always offer help. The MBA program has been demanding at times, but it will lead to several great opportunities and even further prepare me for whatever I may face in the future. I do not know where I will be in five years from now, but I know South Alabama has given me the talent and knowledge to succeed in the area of finance and hopefully even further in my field.

I am member of the following honor societies and clubs:  Mortar Board, Phi Eta Sigma, Alpha Chi, Dean's List every semester, USA Presidential Scholarship receipient, & the Showcase of Excellence.  Besides, I am also involved in many student organizations in various capacities.  Treasurer, Professional Sales and Marketing club, SGA Senator from the Mitchell College of Business, Vice President for Professional Events for Alpha Kappa Psi.
