2013 Texas MBA Women's Forum Student Host
Lilly Yeh, MBA 2014
Welcome to the 2013 Texas MBA Women’s Forum!
I'm an East Coast native who grew up outside the Philadelphia area. I stayed around to attend the University of Pennsylvania for my undergraduate degree in chemical engineering. Before coming to UT, I worked in healthcare consulting at Accenture. I am a second year Texas MBA student focusing on the healthcare industry.
In addition to the Women's Forum, I'm involved in the Graduate Women in Business and the Business Communications Club.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
