  •  Lige Jiang - Advisory Board Merit Scholar

    Friday, Sep. 20, 2013 8:46 AM

    Lige Jiang, recipient of the Vaughan Family Advisory Board Merit Scholarship, expects to graduate from Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business with an MBA in 2016. She currently works full-time as a corporate accountant while attending school. 

    We talked to her about her experiences with the Leavey School of Business so far:
    Why did you decide to go back to school?
    I decided to go back to school for a few reasons - to learn more about finance and management, as well as build up my social network; but I also recognized that an MBA could help me further my career.
    Why did you choose SCU? 
    SCU has a great local reputation. The evening classes and the flexibility of the program enable me to work full time while pursuing my MBA. And the fact that my classmates have different backgrounds helps me build up a diverse network.
    What do you hope the Leavey School of Business will do for you?
    I hope it will provide me more opportunities to interact with successful local business people, and provide good chances to learn practical and useful knowledge applicable in the business world.
    What do you think of your experience here so far?
    It’s been great! The classes deliver very practical knowledge, the professors and staff in the business school are very willing to help, and there are great workshops and seminars that provide us the opportunities to hear from successful alumni.

    Five MBA students are the first recipients of the annual Advisory Board Merit Scholarship, an initiative of the Business School Advisory Board. These $10,000 awards go to graduate students showing exceptional academic standing. Each scholarship also recognizes those Advisory Board members who are active participants in the life of the Leavey School of Business.

    For the next five weeks we will publish an article each week focusing on one of the Advisory Board Merit Scholars and the Advisory Board member who funded their scholarship.
