Jasmine Howard and Her Favorite Element

Graduate student in Scheller College of Business shares her favorite element, sense of tradition and history

August 6, 2019

The monthly series "My Favorite Element" is part of Georgia Tech's celebration of 2019 as the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, #IYPT2019GT. Each month a member of the Georgia Tech community will share his/her favorite element via video.

The August edition features Jasmine A. Howard, an MBA candidate in the Scheller College of Business. 

After graduating from Red Bank High School, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Howard attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She earned a B.S. in business administration in 2012. 

Howard says she chose to do her MBA in the Scheller College of Business "for its academic specialties in business analytics and technology management, for the world-class outcomes of the Jones MBA Career Center, and for the tight-knit collaborative community of the full-time MBA program."

Howard spent this summer as a product marketing intern at Mailchimp, in Atlanta. When the academic year resumes, she will be a graduate assistant in Scheller's marketing department. 

After she earns the MBA, Howard plans to "work in technology or media in a role that leverages my strengths in strategy, marketing analytics, and communications."

Howards favorite element is gold. Find out why in the video. 

Renay San Miguel, communications officer in the College of Sciences, produced and edited the videos in this series.
