Sara Markowitz always knew she would end up in the healthcare field. Growing up, her mom's work as a pediatric nurse left an indelible mark, and Sara eventually decided to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering. She began her career in the medical devices sector, but knew she wanted to make the switch to pharmaceutical marketing and work closer with patients. That goal led her to Chicago Booth.

At Booth, the Health Care Group and student-led conferences prepared her for recruiting and even helped her land a job at AbbVie post-graduation. Now, Sara feels confident in her management and leadership skills and prepared to affect change in the healthcare industry.

Favorite Class So Far

One of my favorite classes so far at Booth has been Strategies and Processes of Negotiation. Each week we get to do in-class lessons where you’re put into a role, and you have to play that role in a negotiation. It's just been so exciting to do that with my classmates. We’re leaning different strategies that are applicable to your professional and personal life.

Outside the Classroom

I was able to attend Start Up Networking Night. Lots of local start ups are in attendance and students get the opportunity to network. There were several health-care companies in attendance, and I actually connected with one that I went on to work with in the winter quarter. I’m so appreciative that making that connection gave me the opportunity to incorporate more professional experience into my time at Booth.
