Meet Genevieve London, MBA '13

My Background

I have a background in biological sciences. I studied Ecology and Evolutionary biology at the University of Colorado. Immediately after graduating I started working for the National Park Service at a park in Maui, HI. I loved being outside and working for the environment but I felt like something was missing. I felt like I was not making a big enough impact. I realized that the type of change agent I wanted to be, I needed a foundation in business principles and practices.

My Experience at Portland State University

I moved to Portland to start my MBA program at PSU. I was excited and a little nervous to be in a new place and start a brand new graduate program. After my first week of classes I knew I chose a program that fit just what I was looking for - rigorous and applicable classes in a sustainable community. I immediately joined Net Impact (a student group committed to social and environmental business impacts) and am currently working on a consulting project with fellow MBA students. The support from faculty, advisors and my cohort members makes me feel at home and ready to succeed.

My Future Goals

I hope to work for a company that shares my passion and vision for the environment. Who is committed to minimizing their ecological footprint. I would like to work in the environmental consulting field.
