Archived Ad: Breaking Into Event Planning / Finance with Experience Abroad in China

I am a 2013 graduate that has recently returned to the states after spending a gap year in China working as an event coordinator/English teacher. I am hoping to break into either the financial world or the event planning field. Ideally I would like to incorporate Chinese into the work place so that I can continue developing my language skills, though this is more a bonus than necessity. Looking for ideas on appropriate next steps.

Archived Ad: Student Athlete Seeks Advice on Marketing Graduate Programs

I am a student-athlete seeking advice on Masters programs in the Greater Boston area. As an avid spectator of sports and life-time athlete I am excited to pursue a career in the sports and events industries. Last summer I was able to intern with the Brooklyn Nets, and I would love the chance to speak with someone who has some insight in the marketing, finance, or corporate sponsorships areas as well. I would also like to pursue a graduate program in marketing, not specifically sports marketing or sports administration. I am considering the new Brandeis University IBS BA/MBA program, and I am interested in what alumni and professionals think of this new program and others.
