For Meg Seitz (MBA ’13), an unconventional career path — from selling seashells during the winter at age 5, to managing a lululemon store, to earning her MBA and launching two new ventures — has reaped the kind of experiences and rewards that could help current School of Business students, working parents and educators focus on their own futures.

Seitz visited the School of Business on its Reynolda Campus on Monday, February 22 to share her inspirational story, “Lessons from the Unconventional MBA.”

She held a conversation with working parents, hosted by the Wake Forest Women’s Center, focusing on her series of children’s books Bea Is for BusinessShe shared her experience in the Charlotte Evening MBA program with current Master of Arts in Management students.
