Logan Peterman grew up listening to the world of finance and business. After work, her dad would tun into NASDAQ, and from a young age Logan would listen and was intrigued by the stock market. Always adept with math and numbers, Logan graduated with a degree in Finance from the University of Georgia.
During Logan’s undergrad experience, she interned with Raymond James as a financial planner. “I am fascinated by the way people spend money in different parts of the world. When I studied abroad in New Zealand, I realized that saving money was a cultural thing. In Fiji, when you earn money, you spend that money right away. Finance is such a unique field, and that experience only made me want to continue learning.”
After graduation, Logan enrolled in the Robinson MBA program. Logan is repeatedly asked why she chose the Robinson program over the University of Georgia MBA, and she is quick to respond that “the Robinson degree is so flexible! Robinson gives me the option to explore different paths, and it is not a general MBA like other schools offer. I am thrilled to take classes in real estate and have the opportunity to take new classes that may pique my interest along the way.”
When asked why she chose to pursue an MBA, she shared “My undergrad was a time of ‘do this’ and ‘do that.’ I didn’t really get to explore some of the things I was interested in like the financial side of real estate. Before I enter the workforce, I want to find my niche in the expansive field that is finance.”
The Robinson MBA program provides unparalleled networking. “The location can’t be beat. I’m from Douglas, Georgia, a very small town. In Atlanta, there are so many employers, and being part of this program gives me the opportunity to meet with companies that align with my values. I want to find a company and stick with them for the long haul, and this program affords me the option to do that.”
