HBS 2 Team hits the road this week in Nashville!!! Follow their #MBAx2 journey and learn about their background below.
Introducing Rachel, Niel, Selena, and Marcos.
Rachel is proud to call Fairfax, VA home, even though it dooms her to a future of cheering for DC’s professional sports franchises. After receiving a BS in Commerce from the University of Virginia, Rachel joined the Boston Consulting Group’s DC office, where she focused mainly on operational improvement projects for education and consumer goods clients. She plans to return to BCG after business school.
Down to her core, Rachel believes in the power of dedicated individuals to transform their communities for the better. She cannot wait to hit the road this summer with MBAx entrepreneurs and teammates who share her stubborn optimism.
Neil grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey, a small city just a few miles from New York City. He attended Cornell University where he majored in Communication and minored in Marketing. After graduating from Cornell he moved to New York City where he spent 3 years at the Nielsen Company doing marketing analytics for CPG and Automotive clients. After completing his MBA at HBS, Neil will be joining Deloitte Consulting’s Strategy & Operations practice in New York City.
Neil is excited to join MBAs Across America and is eager to learn from and work alongside some amazing entrepreneurs who are making a positive impact on their communities. He is also thrilled to explore some new (for him) parts of the country and forge meaningful relationships with some of their most impactful entrepreneurs!
Selena Singleton grew up in Queens, NY and received her Bachelor of Business Administration from Howard University in 2008. Prior to joining UBS Investment Bank, Selena traveled to Ghana, Costa Rica and Brazil for volunteer work and immersive language study. At UBS, she worked on the Investment Grade Credit desk marketing high-quality corporate bonds and servicing investors with credit portfolios ranging from $100mm to $20bn. Selena is conversant in both Spanish and Portuguese. Her interests include travel, sports, cuisine and film.
Marcos grew up the youngest of five children in the small town of Tolleson, Arizona. He became a first-generation college graduate in May 2010 after graduating with a degree in Mathematics from Arizona State University. Shortly thereafter, Marcos began working full-time in Washington, D.C. as the National Director of College Student Leadership with the Hispanic College Fund. Marcos has also spent time consulting with the U.S. Department of Education on their five-year strategic plan and with Next Street Financial, advising small businesses and nonprofits. At Harvard, Marcos has served as Co-Chair for the 16th and 17th Annual Harvard Latino Law, Policy, and Business Conferences, President of the Latino Student Organization, and Managing Editor of the Harvard Journal of Hispanic Policy. Over the course of his career, Marcos envisions spending time across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors addressing some of society’s largest and most complex issues. He will graduate this May with a Joint Degree Masters of Public Policy and MBA student at Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School. In his spare time, you can find him at the club salsa dancing or gym playing basketball.
