Moah Son

Moah is a native New Yorker who has lived in four different cities in three years. One of those cities includes Philadelphia, where she earned her MBA in Marketing and Management from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

While at Wharton, she was involved with the Admissions Committee as a graduate assistant and developed a strong understanding of the admissions process while evaluating numerous applications and doing countless interviews for the admissions committee. Ms. Son began her career as an auditor with Deloitte & Touche before transitioning to forensic and dispute consulting at Deloitte Financial Advisory Services.

Prior to business school, she worked at AIG Real Estate Investments, where she realized she no longer wanted to be an accountant. Moah currently works in finance at Starwood Hotels & Resorts where she supports the Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program. Her job gives her the opportunity to stay at amazing properties around the world and has brought the number of countries visited to 52. When she’s not traveling, she loves to try new restaurants, play volleyball, practice Pilates and watch reality TV. And she’s not afraid to admit it either…

What’s the COOLEST place you’ve ever visited? Why was it so cooool?

Antarctica. That’s right, Antarctica. I did this as part of the Wharton Leadership Ventures during business school. It provided a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to a place most people don’t get to see in a way that is only available to Wharton students – trekking and camping vs. stepping off a cruise ship. Trekking across a glacier alongside chin-strap penguins was a pretty awesome experience!

What’s your most embarrassing moment from school?

I was invited to a recruiting dinner with a top CPG company and when I showed up to the restaurant the hostess had no record of the reservation. Turns out I marked down the wrong date on my calendar in the frenzy of all the recruiting events and the dinner had been the night before. Needless to say, I didn’t get a chance to interview with them!

Why did you decide to get an MBA?

I pursued an MBA because I wanted a career change. While it didn't get me into the career I wanted right away, it provided me with an incredible network and plenty of opportunities to learn about leadership and get outside of my comfort zone. Those things helped me eventually get into the role and industry I wanted because business school turned me into a fearless networking machine.
