My name is Evan Andersen and I am currently a second-year student of the Professional MBA program with a marketing track. For my undergraduate degree, I studied International Business with a minor in Economics at San Diego State University. I grew up in Tustin and Newport Beach and always knew about Chapman University just up the street. After much research and many tours, I decided that Chapman University would be a great opportunity to do an MBA at. Chapman University provides a great education and great professors to work with along with a small school feel, small classrooms as well as many opportunities to network and grow as a person. I have more of a background in product, marketing and sales, after graduation I hope to be a Product Manager.

After my graduation, I worked for ITC Limited for 4 years in their hotel's division. With a year of training in all departments to understand the organization and hotel operations in a holistic perspective, I chose Sales & Marketing as my core area of interest and worked in a managerial position for ITC hotels in Mumbai for 3 years. During my tenure, I got to interact with a lot of influential people in the corporate world which inspired me to keep learning and growing. Thus, I chose to pursue a master's in a business degree program in California and my mentor at that time suggested me with Chapman University. After doing research, I found the program offered at Argyros School of Business and Economics was the right fit for me. The educational journey at Chapman University has been enlightening and enriching. The global environment of education in the MBA program has helped me with a broader mindset and improved business acumen. During the summer, I got a chance to intern with a restaurant and amusement park company where I played the role of Strategic Planning intern and assisted the CEO to make more informed decisions and build the restaurant brand as a consultant to the marketing team.

I moved to the USA from India with my family in 2009, soon after graduation. After a few years of working my way up in different financial institutions, I decided to take my career to a different level with an MBA from Chapman University. The flexible Professional MBA program at ASBE helps me balance a full-time job with classes at a part time pace. The program has not only helped sharpen my hard and soft skills but taught me the art of effective time management! Lectures aside, I have learnt so much from interactions with my intelligent and hardworking classmates- on group projects, in-  class discussions and friendships outside the classroom. I enjoy every bit of the experience -a full schedule of applying what is taught in the classroom to work and using my career experiences to add value to the teachings, as I grow in my career at Chase, under the able leadership of my manager.

Graduating Year: 2019
Undergraduate Institution: Barnard College
Undergraduate Degree: B.A. Biochemistry
Hometown: Palisades Park, NJ
E-mail:  zahn105@mail.chapman.edu

My name is Rowena Zahn and I am a student in the Joint MS Food Science/MBA program. After graduating from Barnard College of Columbia University with a BA in Biochemistry, I worked in executive recruiting in Houston and San Francisco. To utilize my background in science, I became a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative in the San Francisco Bay Area as a member of the Neuroscience specialty division of Eli Lilly and Company. A few years later, my husband and I relocated to Southern California, and I decided to stay at home and parent our four children. I hope that attending graduate school will help me transition back into the professional workplace. Chapman University is a natural fit for me because the dual degree program allows me to combine my science background with my interest in marketing. My favorite aspect of Chapman has been my experience with professors, who have provided a challenging, yet supportive environment. I also served as Philanthropy Chair of the Food Science and Nutrition Student Association and am currently the Student-Alumni Liaison. In addition, I am a Graduate Student Researcher completing my thesis on the Optimization of DNA-based methods to identify elasmobranch species in shark cartilage pills. As an Argyros Ambassador, I look forward to sharing my experience and encouraging potential students to join the Chapman University community.
