Allegra Campbell is a Foster Master of Supply Chain Management alumna from the Class of 2019. Prior to joining Foster, Allegra studied molecular and cellular biology at the University of Puget Sound. Allegra’s unique academic background is not her only standout feature. Recently, Allegra was featured in Poets and Quants article series about paths taken by specialized business grads from top schools. From Foster MSCM to Poets and Quants, this is her story.

A Washington native, Allegra was no stranger to the Foster School of Business. She shared with Poets and Quants that her father got his Executive MBA from the school previously and that this in part inspired her to choose Foster when continuing her education.

Additionally, while it has been over a year since Allegra has graduated from the program, she still finds herself referring back to course material in her role as a Supply Chain Manager at Rainer Industries. For example, concepts learned in the Forecasting and Inventory Management and Supply Chain Analytics remain timeless in Allegra’s real-world applications course. According to her, this was the course that familiarized MSCM students with the “nuts and bolts of supply chain.”

The Foster MSCM curriculum is not the only lesson from her higher education that Allegra carries with her into her professional life. She also reminisces fondly on finishing in 2nd place in the TCU Neely School of Business MBA/MS Supply Chain Competition and the opportunity to visit Germany for an immersive spring break study aboard tour.

Regardless of where Allegra ends up, like all Foster alumni, she’ll always have a home with us in Seattle.
