The talk, sponsored by the Graduate Student Government, is open to all majors and degree levels.
Matthew would describe himself as an entrepreneur at heart with a passion for constant learning who found his calling in a molecular biology class at Michigan Tech. He received two degrees from Michigan Tech including a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology in 2000 and a Master’s of Science in Molecular Biology in 2002. He then worked as a researcher at the University of Michigan before earning an MBA in Marketing in 2007 from Baker College. After completing his MBA he took a position with a multibillion-dollar company to understand what is necessary to be a successful global organization. He parlayed this experience into a leadership role with a smaller organization with plans to expand to new markets. After building the foundation for this business, he found an opportunity back in Michigan with a biotech start-up that married his passions of molecular biology and marketing. He is currently helping this organization grow into a successful company as Marketing Director by utilizing his scientific background to create a differentiated brand.
