Zarb Student Success Stories

Name: Kevin Chen
Major/Degree: MBA Marketing

Hometown: China

Why did you come to the Zarb School?

My cousin's high school classmate went to the Zarb School and got a job offer after she graduated from the school. She highly recommended Zarb's marketing program to me. Zarb's close proximity to New York City was also a great selling point.

Work Experience: Where do you currently work?

I currently work full-time as a Tag Manager at Dow Jones. Dow Jones called me and asked if I was interested in the position. I went through the interview process, and within a week, I received the offer.

Graduate Business Career Services (Lisa Kellerman and Barbara Church- Kattan) gave me a lot of career advice when I was at school, which was extremely helpful!
My proudest moment working for my employer was when I successfully presented a project to the Chief Technology Officer.

How did the Zarb School prepare you for your career?

Speaking with the staff at Graduate Business Career Services, professors at the Zarb School, and the successful industry experts invited by the school really helped to prepare me for my career. I learned a tremendous amount from them all.

What is your favorite memory/experience at the Zarb School?

My favorite memory was when I represented my former employer at Hofstra University’s career fair.

What advice do you have for students who want to follow in your footsteps?

Never feel that you have reached your maximum potential. Always continue to learn and look for new opportunities.
