Hi! Nice to meet you, my name is Marissa McCarthy.
All About Me
I am a first year MBA student at Rochester Institute of Technology with a focus in Management Information Systems. I’ve made Rochester my home for the last five years while I studied at RIT to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering and a Master’s degree in Engineering Management. My education has been the perfect combination of both technical and business elements, igniting my love for managing events and innovating solutions to complicated problems. I have even had the chance to intern with two Fortune 500 companies! If you are interested about my experiences and skillset, feel free to take a look at my resume, attached below!

Before college, I lived with my family in Saratoga Springs, NY. If you have never had the chance to visit before, I highly recommend making the trip! Saratoga is a beautiful city in Eastern NY set an hour north of the New York State Capital and twenty minutes south of the Adirondacks. While you’re there, make sure to check out all the restaurants on Broadway and spend a day betting on horses at the Saratoga Racetrack. I don’t get to go home often, but when I do, I look forward to spending time with my family and playing with my dog, Gracie.
What Does the Future Hold?
After graduating this Spring, I hope to get a full time position as a Systems Engineer or a Data Analyst at a defense company. There is nothing more exciting than knowing the work you do will help those who risk their lives to keep our country safe. Until then, I will be working hard to finish out my last year at RIT on a high!
