This past Friday, March 26th, marked OIG’s Spring 2010 Semester Field Trip! OIG members had a wonderfully busy and informative day of visiting with several Bryn Mawr alumnae, who currently work at some of Philadelphia’s most prominent companies. It was quite inspiring to hear these women offer their perspectives on “Life-post-BMC”, as well as discuss the invaluable experience they had while at Bryn Mawr, and how their college experience truly paved their path to success.
We began our day at Accenture, where several recent graduates of Bryn Mawr presented the business strategies and structural breakdown of one of the largest consulting firms in the world. We later ventured to Sunoco, where we met with a Bryn Mawr alum (along with 2 of her colleagues) who discussed with us the business principles of a Fortune 500 company; in addition to providing us with some very valuable insight, stemming from a long line of success and accomplishments throughout her post-college career. Our final trip was a visit to the Wharton School of Business, at the University of Pennsylvania, where we met with the director of admissions, as well as 3 current MBA students (one of whom was a Mawrtyr!!). The women shared with us their experiences, as well as their reasons for choosing Wharton over other business schools, and provided us with some helpful advice in regards to applying to, and attending, business school.
It was quite an eventful and exciting day for OIG! Thank you to all those who came; please feel free to comment your thoughts and opinions on the trip. Feedback is always greatly appreciated!
Looking forward to seeing you all at our next meeting!! 🙂
