Alumni Spotlight: Sharon H. Markowitz, MBA ‘04

UntitledSimon is a hidden gem in the world of business and I chose the school for a variety of reasons. Simon is unique because of its smaller size, allowing students to build close relationships with fellow students, professors and administration – all while receiving the attention that will help with personal and professional success. My Simon MBA has given me long-lasting friendships, trusted business partners, and a great network I can trust and depend on.

I am currently a Global Senior Marketing Manager at Intuit, Inc., which creates business and financial management solutions. The company’s Flagship products and services include TurboTax,® QuickBooks,® and Quicken®. I have the fortune of working with Intuit’s regional marketers to create and execute global marketing campaigns for customers, while being an ambassador of creating a global-first culture to drive growth. I also manage the Intuit Education Program that provides real-world experience in the classroom, enabling schools with the latest industry financial software, and giving them an edge on academic advancement and/or career progression.

My words of advice for prospective students considering Simon Business School: Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses! Get to know everyone that makes up the Simon community since these are the relationships you will go back to time and time again. And don’t limit yourself to Simon! There are other schools affiliated with the University of Rochester, relating to education, music and medicine, all of which have a reputation both nationally and internationally. Having these schools close by is a great opportunity to make connections, depending on your professional and personal interests.
