Samanaz Kapadia, a Senior Manager at FOX Sports, says she wanted to get an MBA since she was 12 when she first understood the value of higher education. She knew having an MBA would help her move up the corporate ladder and it was important to her to go to a school that reflected her values. Helping veterans further their education and re-enter the workplace is a cause that she’s passionate about and she loves that the Graziadio School supports those who have worked tirelessly to protect our freedoms.
Samanaz will be participating in a Graziadio event called Industry Insights from Entertainment, Media, and Technology on October 19. She says she loves helping students who want to work in the entertainment industry and she’s looking forward to sharing her experience with students who want to pursue a similar career. She plans to talk about her programming and commercial administration work at FOX Sports as well as her philanthropic endeavors. Samanaz received her BA in Business Administration from California State University-Fullerton in 2005 and her MBA from the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School in 2010.
