Simon Story: Optimizing Delivery for Amazon

Simon gave Shahbaaz Mubeen ’18 (MBA) the tools to communicate clearly and effectively with various organization stakeholders during his summer internship at Amazon. The mastery he demonstrated in finance, technology, and operations resulted in the creation of a team dedicated to implement the project he piloted as an intern, and ultimately landed him a full-time position with Amazon as a senior program manager.

Simon Story: From #SimonStrong to Starbucks

“One thing that really stood out to me was just how warm everybody was.”

That was something that drew Jasmine Mitchell ’19 (MBA) to Simon as she was looking at MBA programs. That feeling is captured by a student-driven, grassroots phrase: #SimonStrong. In her words, “it’s who we are” and it represents how the students feel about one another and the commitment they share—something she sees as very unique to Simon’s program.

#SimonStrong is more than just a phrase, it’s a philosophy. Having benefited from mentoring by current students as she was embarking on her MBA journey, Jazz is returning the favor by reaching out to incoming MBA students. After her internship with Starbucks’ Global Marketing Strategy Division, she undoubtedly has valuable advice to share.
