First-Year MBA, Concentration in Finance

Daniel Frey


BA in German Studies

In 2009, I completed my bachelor’s degree in German studies with the hope of joining the State Department. Not all plans come to fruition, and I found my first career in the alcoholic beverage industry, where I first worked for the McKenzie River Corporation. I later landed a position as a district manager with the Boston Beer Company, where I perfected my sales craft and learned how to manage the sales and operations of a state-sized district.

During my time at the Boston Beer Company, I noticed that the founder and many in the leadership team had MBA's, and I resolved to earn one so that I too could achieve higher levels of success. I chose Eller because it is located in my hometown, and the staff in the MBA office engaged with me immediately on a very personal and touching level. It is very clear that they are intimately invested in the success of each candidate, and I found that very appealing.

The best part of the Eller MBA has been meeting the other candidates, all of whom are incredible people I now consider close friends.

Once I complete my MBA, I hope to gain new experiences and learning opportunities in field of corporate finance.

If you have questions about Eller, the application process or anything else, I’d be more than happy to connect!
