Park Fellow Alumni Profiles

Shahnaz Shustari, MBA '08Shahnaz Shustari, MBA '08

My experience at Johnson has been truly enriched by my Park project, due to the variety of people across the school and greater Johnson community we were able to work with. Being a Park Fellow has helped shape my outlook on a career by forcing me to take a hard look at myself, test, and continually re-test where my interests and leadership strengths truly lie. In many ways, the Park program led me to my post-MBA career choice, strategy consulting, through this process of intensive and continual self-discovery.
