Student Spotlight: Noah Mehta

Tell us about yourself.
I’m from Ontario, Canada and I attended Duquesne University for my undergrad in finance and international business. Outside of the classroom, I was a member of Duquesne’s men’s soccer team and competed all four years in the A-10 Conference.

Throughout my undergrad career I completed three internships with CBI Health Group, CLE Leasing and EMEC Machine Tools. During these college internships, I dealt with a variety of budgets, created financial models, and conducted extensive market research while handling numerous administrative duties. This experience allowed me to learn important skills and to develop the confidence needed to succeed in a competitive environment.

Companies all around the world have the biggest leverage to make change and to sustain future generations. That is why an MBA program emphasizing sustainable business practices is a necessity for any aspiring business undergraduate trying to succeed in this constantly growing arena. I believe that the resources this program has to offer will set me apart from other MBA graduates and will give me the opportunity to launch my career while making a difference in the world.

What is one of your favorite things to do in Pittsburgh?
Hanging out with friends in Southside and exploring the beautiful scenery the city has to offer.

What skill would you like to master?
After living off the typical college diet consisting of Milano’s and ramen noodles I hope to elevate my culinary skills and create gourmet quality meals.

Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
Hands down, the most interesting place I’ve ever been would have to be Goa. Known as India’s pocket-sized paradise I was able to enjoy the diverse and captivating mix of people, food, lifestyles, cultures, and religions this city had to offer. I also learned that cutlery at the dinner table is frowned upon – taking “finger licking good” to the next level.

What is the best way to start the day?
Second best to sleeping in, would be going for a run around the city and kick starting my day in a positive and energizing way.

Where would you spend all of your time if you could?
Just like the Toronto Maple Leafs during the Stanley playoffs, I would spend all my time on the golf course.
