Andrea Aronson heads up our New Jersey office. Andrea earned an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and has turned her more than 20 years of marketing and business experience toward her true passion – working with students in the college and graduate school admissions process. “My focus is on really understanding our students’ needs, and helping them to find the right fit.”
A Marketing Whiz
Andrea spent years honing her marketing and communications skills at both major corporations — such as American Express, Reader’s Digest and Bank One — as well as small start-up companies. She knows the importance of always putting one’s best foot forward, and she understands how to help students do that for the college and graduate school marketplace.
A Communications Guru and Mentor
Andrea is a seasoned writing instructor who has experience both teaching college undergraduates about writing mechanics and composition as well as guiding business professionals on presentation development and copywriting. In addition, she has served as an admissions interviewer for both of her alma maters and has recruited and interviewed many college and MBA graduates as a hiring manager.
