Meet Julia Baldwin, MBA '16

My Background

I grew up in Portland and moved to the east coast to attend college. I majored in theatre at UPenn and worked for about 5 years in theatre management (both for commercial companies and nonprofits). I moved back to Portland about 4 years ago and have mostly been working in higher education. I'm currently a departmental research administrator in the School of Social Work at PSU.

My Experience at Portland State University

I've really loved being in the part-time MBA program at PSU. All of students have incredible work experience to draw on which enriches the classroom experience. The professors have been engaging, knowledgeable, and accessible and the material feels very relevant. I have particularly enjoyed being able to put to use the content I learn in the classroom at my job.

My Future Goals

Eventually, I would like to start my own small company in Portland (industry: TBD). In the meantime, I am excited to be able to put to use all that I have learned in this program.
