Alumni Testimonials


Vanessa Stella (Marketing/Design, 2011)
Current: Marketing Coordinator, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

“My experience at PhilaU was incredible! Not only did I make great friends and have a lot of fun during my 4 years, but I also had the chance to work hands-on with major corporations on real-world projects and gain professional experience to add to my resume. 

“A major part of the business curriculum is working on group projects, either with large organizations to develop new products and strategies or as an entrepreneurial/start-up endeavor to bring a new business to the community. These experiences turned out to be top highlights of my time at PhilaU. In one of these projects, my team and I created an entire business plan from the ground up, covering everything from marketing and finance to logistics and staffing. In another, my team and I had the chance to work with a major supplier to the auto industry. After being named the winner of the project, we were taken to the company's headquarters in Michigan to see first-hand how our products could be taken to market. All of these real-world experiences helped me broaden my network, strengthen my resume and gain more experience through internships. I was able to intern for 3 different companies before graduating, one of which led me directly into my first job out of college. Earning a degree in Marketing and a minor in Design from PhilaU has given me a solid start to my professional life, and I know that what I've learned will continue to be valuable to me as I progress in my career.”
