Meet Laura McCurry, Full-time MBA Class of 2012
Seattle native Laura McCurry places a high value on community and collaboration, and found a “perfect fit” for these values at the Foster School of Business. She parlayed an undergraduate degree in business into a five-year stint in Quito, Ecuador, helping fair trade producers improve their business practices and market to customers worldwide. After returning to Seattle, she decided to take her career to the next level by seeking an MBA. At the Foster School, she has found ample opportunities to pursue her passion, whether sharing her experience with new MBA students as a Leadership Fellow, serving on a non-profit board as a Board Fellow, or raising funds and networking with alumni for Challenge for Charity. And Foster’s connections in the business community have given her an opportunity to explore post-MBA employment that will have a positive impact on society as well as the bottom line.
