I am a senior, graduating in May with a B.A. in mathematics and a minor in economics. I am looking to enter the job market, but at the moment I am not sure what career path I would like to pursue. I am originally from Long Island, N.Y. but am planning on moving away after graduation. The city that piques my interest the most is San Diego, although I am open to living and working anywhere.
My previous working experience is varied; I have had internships in residential real estate as well as in government, and since my sophomore year have had an on-campus job in the athletic department.
Potential career-related interests of mine include sports and public transit, and I would definitely be interested in jobs in those fields. Working in the public sector or for a non-profit also piques my interest, but I am willing to consider anything.
If anyone was in a similar situation towards the end of their undergraduate years or has any advice to offer, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you in advance.

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.
