Anne-Lynsha Mompérousse came to Saint Rose from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, after hearing good things about the Huether School of Business and Saint Rose from a friend. An intern at the Office of the New York State Comptroller, the dual-degree student (B.S. Finance/M.S. Business Analytics) will be looking for career opportunities as an analyst after graduating this year.
What are your career plans/goals?
After receiving my degrees, my hope is to work as an analyst – either a business or financial analyst at a tech firm.
What do you love about your major?
The thing I love most about my major is the versatility it gives me to work in any field. I also love being able to better understand a business by looking at its numbers. Whether those are its financial statements, customer database, stock information, etc. I also get bored easily, so what I like especially is the challenge provided by working in either of those fields. It’s never a dull day, there’s always going to be problems to solve, you always have to be sharp and alert, and I like that.
What drew you to the Huether School of Business and/or Saint Rose?
I found out about the Huether School of Business and Saint Rose through a friend that was attending at the time. She told me that Saint Rose had a great business program. Fast forward to 2021, here I am and graduating soon.
What classes have you found the most valuable so far?
In their own way, all my classes were valuable. Taught by my incredible teachers, my favorites were Investment: Student Managed Portfolio, Predictive Modeling, my computer sciences classes, and most recently, my Data Visualization and Market Research class. I really enjoy these courses. They’re all quite interactive.
Have you done an internship yet? If so, what was it, and how has it helped you?
Yes, I currently intern at the Office of the New York State Comptroller. This internship has helped me in many ways. It has helped me realized what I want/don’t want to do as a career. It also helped me hone key skills such as multitasking, communicating, learning to deal with diversity, and dealing with deadlines, which are different when working for an actual organization.
Tell us about your extracurricular activities. Are you involved in any clubs/organizations?
Yes, I’m a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success organization.
