Crina Manea

Crina Manea
In the summer of 2017, I enrolled as a new MBA student at Nova Southeastern University, initially with concentration in Human Resources, but then switched over to Business Intelligence/Business Analytics. I love being a student. I love learning new things. I love the challenges of testing my limits. And this is the best decision I could have made: to continue my education.

It is my goal, upon graduation from NSU, with an MBA program specialized in Business Intelligence/Business Analytics, to be actively part of this Economic sector. My ten year plan is to be able to become a Senior Program Manager in one of the companies that I've admired and followed for so long. Having an education and degree from a prestigious school like NSU will open the doors that have hitherto been shut for me.  I know how it is to start from nothing. I consider myself very successful in my life because I still possess not only a high degree of optimism, but also a zero degree of entitlement. In this country, nothing happens for you, unless you are willing to work very, very hard in order to make it happen.
