My name is Amanda LaSala and I am currently an MBA student at Quinnipiac University. For the past two years, I have been working toward receiving my General MBA degree and I am expected to graduate this upcoming May. I completed my undergraduate studies at Quinnipiac as well, where I recieved a Bachelors of Science degree in International Business. I also minored in Spanish. As an undergraduate student, I was a member of the Phi Sigma Sigma Fraternity, the International Business Society, and the Beta Gama Sigma Business Honor Society.
I have spent the past five years living in Hamden, Connecticut, while enrolled at Quinnipiac. However, I was born and raised in Middletown, New Jersey, where my parents and the majority of my family currently still live. For the past three years, I have worked as an Account Assistant for Avidxchange, Inc. in Somerset, New Jersey. As an Account Assistant, I assisted executives with project management and implemetation, as well as developed interpersonal and technical skills. I also perfected my knowlege of the Microsoft Office Suite, including Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
I have a great passion for travel, as well as cultural studies. My aspiration is to hold a professional position in the field of International Business and International Relations. I am fascinated by International Business and the interconnectivity of the world in a corporate setting. I have been fortunate enough to travel to numerous countries, including China, Brazil, France, Hungary, Italy, and England. In 2013, I studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain for a semester, which was both an incredible and invaluable experience. In addition to traveling, I also enjoy reading, hiking, theater, tea, watching movies, and adventure.
Studying at Quinnipiac for both my undergraduate and graduate education has been a wonderful experience, and I am excited to see what my future will hold. For Shakespeare once stated, "the world is my oyster."
