Amir Forouzan was a project director at a medical market research outfit in the Philadelphia suburbs, where he specialized in qualitative market research. “I think my prior background in philosophy and English gave me a different perspective and thought process on approaching business topics,” he said. “But what left an indelible mark for me was learning from faculty in both approaches and styles of instructing.”
Not surprisingly that faculty expertise is what attracted Forouzan to USciences in the first place. Forouzan points to his MBA capstone project, titled “Milking a Cash Cow: The Effects of Pediatric Exclusivity as Outlined under the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act,” as his biggest accomplishment in school. It allowed him not only to work independently, but also to amalgamate his prior background with the knowledge he had accrued throughout the MBA program.
He advises current and future students to “be willing to work on presentation skills, to be prepared, and to approach every situation with the seriousness of a workplace interaction.”
