I chose business informatics because of the career choices it offered. I wanted to work for a big company and work with and manage "Big Data."
who was your favorite professor at widener?
Yvonne Antonucci was my favorite professor because she was hands-on. She taught me about the field
and about all the jobs available in it.
My Professional Experience
what do you like most about your current position?
I am traveling and working at DuPont. I love the constant stimulation and the people are great. I really enjoy it.
what advice would you give a prospective student considering your major?
I would encourage students to work as interns and be proactive. They should make their interests known. I was offered an internship at DuPont in the area of supply chain management. Then I was offered a full-time position with DuPont before I graduated. I know that having an internship on my resume and making connections throughout the summer contributed to me getting that position.
