Graduate Program: Business Administration/Marketing
About Cynthia: After living in Romania for 18 years, I had the unique opportunity to engage in an adventure across the world. I attended Ozark High School as a foreign exchange student during my senior year and in fact graduated in 2009. I continued my studies at Missouri State University and obtained my Bachelors of Science in Marketing – Sales/Sales Management in May 2013. Currently, I am pursuing a Master’s in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing. In the Office of Admissions, I serve as the Transfer Graduate Assistant. My responsibilities include meeting with students interested in transferring to Missouri State University, helping plan and run transfer events such as TRANSFERmation and Transfer VIP Days.
What were you involved with at Missouri State: During my undergraduate I was a part of Xi Omicron Iota Sorority, University Ambassadors, and REAL Bears.
Best advice for future students: Be open to learning new things, making new friends and participating in unique opportunities. Due to the size of our campus and the number of students, the campus is always buzzing with activities and chances for students to get involved. Don’t be afraid to explore social organizations, take a BearFit class, or participate in clubs designed for your major. As an international student coming to Missouri State, I also made an effort to keep an open mind and explore things that were new to me. And that definitely helped me find a home away from home at Missouri State!
