The MBA & Side Hustle Life
April 6 @ 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
Starting a business or running a side hustle while in business school is an incredible learning opportunity that allows you to grow, learn and develop as a leader and entrepreneur. There are seemingly endless resources and each experience enriches the other. On April 6 we’re talking to three current students about their businesses and business school experience over the last year, and hearing their advice and lessons learned. Come with questions, share your own stories and join this conversation!
Farah Azmi is a second-year MBA candidate at Harvard Business School and the founder of IXORA Apparel. Started in March 2020, IXORA is a DTC apparel brand aiming to change the way we shop, going to the opposite direction of mass production and creating apparel that is made just for you. Her background on Wall Street and experience with ill-fitted workwear drove her to start IXORA, where she’s been running it for the last year.
Lizzie Ann Jones is a first-year MBA candidate at Rice’s Jones Graduate School of Business and the founder of Hey Lizzie Ann. HLA is an early-career consulting firm helping women land jobs at global technology companies, offering coaching, workshops and other resources to help her clients reach their goals. Her background in recruiting and HR and her industrial & organizational psychology helps her give her candidates an edge and she actually started her company before starting at Rice this past fall and continues to help her candidates land the dream roles in tech and beyond.
Saniya Waghray is a second-year MBA candidate at the Wharton School of Business and seamlessly manages a number of side hustles. In addition to her on-campus involvement leading Wharton’s I&D Club which focuses on integrating human-centered design and innovation, she also serves as a career coach and mentor through Career Contessa, leads dance workshops through BollySoulDance, and more. Her background in marketing and passion for community building and design-thinking have driven her to advise on a number of organizations including BalletX, Red Crane Films, and more recently, MBAchic.
