Hello everyone. My name is Nadine and I’m a first-year MBA student at the Fisher College of Business. I am a corporate finance major with a background in accounting (I previously worked at Ernst and Young before coming to b-school) and I’m excited to share with you my experiences as a Senior Financial Analyst Intern at Limited Brands this summer.
Last summer, my first ‘Fisher’ (and coincidently, Ohio State) experience was as part of the Global Summer Fellowship Program with Fisher Professional Services. The Global Summer Fellowship allows students to work in teams with corporate clients on projects internationally, earning class credit in the process. For my project, I worked in Hong Kong with Mast Industries, a subsidiary of Limited Brands that works in global sourcing. My summer in China was an absolute blast – I made tons of new friends, gained some in-depth knowledge about the retail industry, visited new places with amazing views… even tried new foods (squid, shark, snake!)

I loved my experience abroad learning more about the retail industry, so needless to say, I was thrilled to get an offer to intern this summer in Columbus for Limited Brands in Finance. I’ll receive more details about my internship in the next week, but from what I’ve been told so far, I’ll be working on a project for sourcing and logistics that deals with international transportation. For now, I’m busy finishing up projects and studying for finals for my core classes, the ones that all MBA students are required to take. I just returned from a trip from Chicago, am going to Las Vegas in a couple weeks, and then I’m headed to Maryland for a wedding during the first week of my internship, so needless to say, there will be a lot on my plate within the next couple weeks in addition to getting ready for my work at Limited Brands. I’m definitely looking forward to it!
