Meet Andrew Nelson, MBA '16

My Background

I was born and raised in New Jersey and attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY where I earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Design. My wife and I moved to the Portland area in 2010 when I got a job at Tektronix. Before moving into my current role of Product Marketing, I was an Applications Engineer for IC Packaging and a Mechanical Engineer in the Value Analysis Value Engineering team.

My Experience at Portland State University

My experience at Portland State University has been highlighted by team based learning, both assigned and ad hoc. As a part-time student I have also prioritized being involved in campus events to improve my Graduate experience.

My Future Goals

As with the vast majority of my classmates, I am getting an MBA to help me in the advancement of my career. More specifically, with the new knowledge I gather at Portland State University I plan on becoming involved in product marketing, planning and relationship management (supplier and customer).
