True Student Perspective
Rady Admissions Ambassadors are current students who provide first-hand knowledge of student life and academics here at the Rady School. Our Ambassadors welcome the opportunity to connect with you online or in-person for an informational meeting and tour of Rady facilities.
Please note during the summer quarter many students are away from campus working on internship opportunities and the response time may take longer than normal.
Lauren M. Murphy | Full-Time MBA 19
My name is Lauren Murphy and I am a first year full-time MBA student at Rady, class of 2019. I am a British citizen, born in Bermuda, but grew up in San Diego. I pursued my undergraduate studies at Boston University, where I earned my B.A. magna cum laude in International Relations. Before Rady, I worked in healthcare working for the Organ Transplant Center at Scripps Health in San Diego. I decided to pursue my MBA in order to pivot into a more strategic business role in the healthcare industry. I am particularly interested in consulting roles with hospitals and healthcare organizations in order to optimize their performance in an increasingly uncertain healthcare environment. When I was looking at different business schools, Rady was undoubtedly my first choice. It's not only the top MBA program in San Diego, with a strong focus on quantitative skills, but it has a small collaborative community of diverse and engaging students. I have really enjoyed my courses thus far, and am looking forward to upcoming classes in finance and marketing. I am a member of the Women's MBA club at Rady and a member of the Rady Student Ambassador program. I enjoy getting to the beach with my dog Jackson or heading to the mountains to ski.
