When Marketing Meets Innovation

When Shota Ido, ’19, applied to Booth, he’d already identified his next career move.  In an application essay for Booth, he outlined his goal of becoming a product manager at an enterprise tech company after graduation.

From Overlooking the Bean to Exploring Beantown

Greetings from Boston! This summer, I traded my view of Chicago’s “Bean” sculpture for the city nicknamed Beantown (though I have avoided the eponymous summer food staple due to the recent heat spell we have been facing in the Northeast!).
