By: Marjorie Stenger, M.B.A.
My name is Marjorie Stenger, and I am proud to have achieved my second Berkeley College degree! I earned my BA in Marketing in 2012, and am a member of the first graduating M.B.A. in Management class. I currently serve as Regional Internal Wholesaler for AXA Equitable, a worldwide leader in financial protection strategies and wealth management with 107 million clients, individuals and businesses, in 64 countries. AXA has been ranked the #1 insurance brand in the world for eight consecutive years. I have served in many departments within AXA, such as customer service and new business operations.
Berkeley College has allowed me to expand my aptitude in analysis and execution. Although the M.B.A. program was rigorous, the professors allowed the students to explore, analyze, and articulate our own perspectives regarding business and economics globally. I truly appreciate how engaged our professors were throughout the entire program. To say they pushed us to our fullest potential would be an understatement. Despite the challenging curriculum, motivation from faculty and an unexpected comradery shared between my classmates helped me get through. The supportive friendships that have grown through this program nothing short of inspirational.
When I began the M.B.A. program, I had an eagerness to advance professionally. I applied the many frameworks and knowledge I attained through courses such as Organizational Behavior and Operations Management to my daily work objectives. The positive changes in my work helped me receive an award for 2016 New Business Employee of the year at our National Sales meeting in Phoenix, AZ. I have recently transitioned into a new role with our Sales and Marketing department as a Regional Internal Wholesaler. Upon receipt of my M.B.A., I hope to continue to prosper within my career, as well as achieve my goal of becoming a business owner by 30 years old.
My biggest motivation to achieve my goals would be my family! Their support has motivated me to be the best mother, student, and business woman I could be. I hope that one day my journey can inspire my children and others around me to dream without limits, see the opportunity in obstacles, and that no matter how educated or successful you are, how you treat people is what matters most in this world.
