Mei Huang

Mei Huang is a fourth-year student pursuing a double major in operations management and marketing and is looking forward to spending her final year at Fisher as a Peer Advisor. Originally from Beijing, China, Mei spent a year as an exchange student in high school living with a host family on a farm in Gentry, Arkansas, and another year at a Catholic high school in Michigan City, Indiana, from which she eventually graduated.

During her visit to Ohio State, Mei was impressed with the mix of the campus’ classic architecture and modern innovations, and the diversity of experiences that come with attending a large school. She credits some of her early success to upper-class mentors she met through her freshman survey class, as well as through Fisher International Friends, both of which pushed her to get involved and engaged on campus. Throughout her time at Fisher, Mei has been involved in Fisher Citizens Program, FisherCares, Students Consulting for Non-Profits, International Undergrad Future Orientation, Honors Accounting, the Consulting Industry Immersion Program and Buckeye Operations Management Society.

Mei has taken advantage of a number of opportunities at Ohio State, and she is thankful to have explored these experiences before finding her passion and path. Ultimately, she chose operations as her specialization, as she enjoys the technical aspects of supply chain management and how it intersects business and engineering. Additionally, she enjoys evaluating innovations and efficiencies in American supply chain systems using her familiarity with the Chinese logistics and transportation system.

She has pursued her professional interests through an internship at a logistics company in New York City as a sophomore, and spent last summer in the Beijing headquarters of Nestlé as a supply chain analyst. Mei is considering a number of different opportunities following graduation, including pursuing a graduate degree. In her free time she enjoys art, calligraphy, painting, ceramics, bowling, pool and travelling.

Mei’s advice for first-year students? Take advantage of opportunities presented to you, be intellectually curious, and — most importantly — have fun!
