Madelynn Brown

Madelynn Brown earned her BBA in Marketing from LIM College. A 2013 graduate, Madelynn has since held management roles at Expedia and Amazon. Now, the Seattle native is a senior program manager in digital marketing at Microsoft.

In a recent interview with WWD, Madelynn speaks about the LIM courses that taught her the professional skills she uses on a daily basis at Microsoft, as well as the internship classes that gave her effective networking tools.

"I attended LIM College with the initial goal of working in fashion merchandising and ended up in tech marketing/engineering," Madelynn tells WWD. "I took courses such as global retailing, economics, business accounting, and marketing—and those classes helped me develop the skills I use today."

She continues, "Learning how to create an effective résumé, develop my personal pitch, and make professional connections really gave me a head start on getting my foot in the door at a big company."
