WHY BC? – VETERAN STUDENT AND ALUMNI EXPLAIN HOW THE BC MBA HAS ACCELERATED THEIR POST-MILITARY CAREERS

STATEMENTS FROM OUR STUDENT VETERANS

Anthony Parisi
BC MBA ‘14
US Army


Catherine grew up in Philadelphia, PA and moved to Woodlands, TX when she was in high school. She chose to attend the Coast Guard Academy, where she earned a BS in Management while rowing crew. “I chose the Coast Guard Academy because I saw the many opportunities available through the academy and upon graduation. I was stationed on CGC HARRIET LANE in Portsmouth, VA for two years and then moved to Miami, FL as the Executive Officer of CGC WILLIAM FLORES.”

The Coast Guard has offered Catherine experience managing people and budgets, experiences she believes will help her to be a successful MBA student. “The Coast Guard encourages its members to have dual career paths. I chose my initial path of going to sea, and I wanted to continue my education by pursuing an MBA in an area that I can use in a second field, such as financial management, but also bring management fundamentals back to the operational fleet.”

The emphasis on values and community at Boston College attracted Catherine to the Carroll School. “When I actually started talking to the faculty and staff at Boston College, I realized that they truly did live by the values that they speak about. It is such an inviting environment!

“I am looking forward to meeting and networking with my classmates. I have been a part of the Coast Guard for eight years now, so it will be nice to see the different perspectives that those coming from the civilian industry bring to the program.”

Catherine will be returning to the Coast Guard upon completion of her MBA. She will assume a financial management role.
