One of my professors repeatedly passed on my résumé to companies—all on his own. I never asked. The fact that he’d do that is amazing.
Ayesha Narula, Full-time MBA Alum
On TCU’s focus on each student’s career goals
For corporate chemist Ayesha Narula, earning a TCU MBA caused just the right reaction. Following an extended internship with Galderma, this career changer landed a prime position as a brand manager.
The TCU difference
Although she considered the full range of MBA programs, TCU’s effort to help her achieve her goals stood out. “At some schools you got the impression you should be glad they let you in. But at TCU the message is ‘We’re glad you’re here, and we want to be partners in your success.’ One of my professors repeatedly passed on my résumé to companies—all on his own. I never asked. The fact that he’d do that is amazing.”
Most students wait until summer to work their internships, but Ayesha got a head start, thanks to TCU’s corporate connections. A mock interview with Galderma, a worldwide dermatological drugmaker, led to an internship that lasted 18 months. “TCU was a real game changer. My résumé before didn't have that impact, but now it has those bottom-line results companies seek.”
An interview for a consumer products position crystallized her goals: she wanted to do brand management for companies or products that positively impact people's lives. Following marketing and brand roles at Galderma and Farmer Brothers, Ayesha is now in a senior role with The Kraft Heinz Company.
