Neha Mathur, M&T ’14
WHAT ARE YOU DOING CURRENTLY?
I currently am a business analyst at McKinsey’s Business Technology Office. I primarily focus on work around the topic of Digital – how companies will modernize themselves, innovate, and prepare for the future with technology.
HOW DID M&T PREPARE YOU FOR YOUR CURRENT ROLE OR LIFE AFTER GRADUATION?
M&T armed me with hard business skills while continuing to spark my interest in technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. However, in life after graduation, I must say that one of the biggest assets leaving the program is the ability to master complex but vastly diverse skill sets and concepts at the same time. As a consultant, you are often placed into settings where you may not be the expert on a certain industry, topic, or analysis. Being able to learn quickly, connect the dots, and really grasp the problem is a skill that M&T’s develop as a part of the rigorous and diverse program.
HOW DO YOU CONNECT WITH THE M&T COMMUNITY?
NYC meet-ups, Philly reunions, social media, and speaking on the phone with current students that reach out to me!
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE M&T PROGRAM?
The group of students I met along the way – the most inspirational, well-rounded, and intelligent group of people I could have ever hoped to be my classmates.
WHAT ACTIVITIES DID YOU TAKE PART IN WHILE AT PENN?
I was extremely involved with the M&T Student Board, MUSE Consulting (Penn’s Marketing Club), INCOSE Systems Engineering Board, and my sorority, Chi Omega.
