Why I Love M&T: Andrew Zhang and Jake Friedman

M&T BoardAndrew Zhang, M&T Class of 2018

I chose M&T because it offered me the most flexibility. I knew I wanted to work in business as well as tech, and I wouldn’t have been able to do that at any other school. M&T, in my mind, doesn’t close any doors as far as future employment, it only opens. And along the way I met an amazing family that wants nothing more than to see me succeed.

Andrew, from Germantown, Maryland, is currently a member of the Professional Development Committee of the M&T Student Board. He studies Computer Science within Penn Engineering and has yet to declare his concentration in the Wharton School.

Jake Friedman, M&T Class of 2019

I first fell in love with the concept of integrating management and technology when I arrived in the summer of 2014 for M&TSI (Management and Technology Summer Institute). Throughout the program, I was continually fascinated by the opportunity to study business and engineering alongside one another. And now, as a current M&T student, this magic still has yet to wear off. However, I was surprised that really the greatest thing about the M&T Program is the the sense of community that it creates. As a member of the M&T Social Board, I was drawn to this community my first weeks on campus, as the M&T office quickly became a comfortable and fun place to spend time. Whether I am talking to a senior or another freshman, there is a strong sense of community and collaboration among M&T students that I never expected before arriving at Penn. I am thrilled to have a such an active community surrounding me for my college experience.
