Student Spotlight: Patricia Nicholson

As we continue with our final semester; we will spotlight Patricia Nicholson

Patricia Nicholson, I am from Pittsburgh, PA and earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from Robert Morris University in 1997. I have 20 years of work experience across marketing, product management, project management and personnel management, most recently working at BNY Mellon as Director, Head of Global Distribution Support. I wanted to attend Duquesne’s MBA Sustainable Business Practices program because it is ranked #1 in the United States, is a 1-year full-time program and would provide the foundation for entry into sustainability within any industry. I hope to use my previous work experience and current education to implement positive changes within an organization to make an environmental, social and/or economic impact.
