  My capstone project for the MS-MBA for Food and Agribusiness Management was instrumental in my recent promotion at Syngenta. As the new divisional marketing manager of Syngenta Seeds, I will be responsible for the marketing efforts of the Great Lakes states, the East Coast, and across the south to Texas for the corn and soya division. During my interview for the position, I was asked about my capstone project, which involved working elements across several divisions and our product portfolio creating greater value in the marketplace. During the interview, I explained my recommendations to the marketing head of our seed division.

I’m very excited by this opportunity, and grateful to the Purdue-IU program for providing me with the knowledge and skills necessary for securing this opportunity and providing value to Syngenta.
