Student Spotlight: Mitchell Krenzer

Tell us about yourself.
My name is Mitchell Fox Krenzer and I am from Rochester, New York. For my undergraduate degree at Duquesne, I studied Accounting. I was intrigued by the Sustainable Business Practices MBA program after several presentations given by representatives of the school. I believe that sustainability is the core future of Business, therefore it is part of the key to achieve success in my career. My primary goal is to attain the skills needed to be competitive in the business world, but also have the resources necessary to be successful in my career. My work experience is vast. In the summer of 2018, I was an Internal Auditing intern for Monroe County. I have also been a Resident Assistant at Duquesne for the last three years. I have also been self employed for many years doing odd jobs such as painting, landscaping, and carpet cleaning.

What skill would you like to master?
Computer program skills, as it is very important for modern day business activities.

What could you give a 30-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?

I am most looking forward to purchasing and owning my own house within the next ten years.

What is the best way to start the day?
Going on a short twenty minute walk.
