On the Fast Track to Success
For Caitlin, campus activities and involvement are a way of life. She is a member of student government, serving as executive vice president; Lubin School president; a campus marketing representative for Kaplan Test Prep; a peer leader for UNV 101 classes; and has been inducted into Lambda Sigma and Omicron Delta Epsilon. And works as a market research intern at Fuse TV at Madison Square Garden.
Caitlin Meuser ‘13 is on the fast track. A Pforzheimer Honors College, Eagle Foundation and Roger E. Tetrault scholar, Caitlin has already had the honor of personally meeting with Pace University’s president, its Board of Trustees, Pace’s deans, other university administrators and business executives from all over the New York City area—and she is just about to finish her junior year. “The best thing about the Lubin School of Business is the countless networking opportunities that the school provides,” she says.
Last summer, Caitlin had a marketing internship with GenYOUth Foundation, a not-for-profit company that works with schools, communities and business partners to prevent childhood obesity and create lasting changes in the child health and wellness arena. She created marketing plans to increase the foundation’s brand equity and awareness. “I believe it is extremely important to participate in internships because it allows you to utilize the skills and knowledge you gain from your courses and apply that to your world of work,” she notes.
She’s also had the opportunity to study abroad through the Asian Business Strategies class, a field-study course that took students to China during spring break. “I learned the differences between management strategies in China and the U.S., and how we can use this knowledge to create businesses that are successful in both cultures,” says Caitlin, who just came back from a trip to London and Brussels in January. “I still can’t believe I have walked the Great Wall and seen the Forbidden City. It truly astounded me how, despite the language barrier, I was able to communicate with locals through hand gestures and reading facial expressions. I developed a newfound appreciation for the Chinese way of life and feel more ‘globalized’ thanks to my field study.”
