UCLA Anderson alumna Britney Sussman (’16) found her passion for human capital management while earning her MBA. She’ll pursue her career with Deloitte next year and is meanwhile working on a short-term human capital consulting project for the Los Angeles Lakers.
BusinessBecause interviewed Sussman about her deep interest in and commitment to women’s advancement in business and management education. “The MBA gender gap is no secret,” she told Christian Robinson. “Anderson and other schools are undertaking significant efforts to try to make their student bodies more equitable, but more can be done. I was focused on attracting high-potential women to the MBA, and enhancing the current female student on-campus experience.”
Sussman contributed to that enhancement in any number of ways — assuming the helm of the Women’s Business Connection, which co-organized the signature Velocity Women's Summit, launching Anderson’s MANbassador ally campaign, and earning a Poets & Quants Best MBA distinction, to name a few.
