James Feng ’21, Summer Spotlight #1 of 6

Today, we released our first of six Summer Spotlights for Drive Time: James Feng ’21. The six Spotlight nominees were selected by their class as having outstanding UCLA stories. We recorded these six Spotlights with you in mind, to give you first-person examples of how to maximize your MBA from UCLA Anderson.

James’ story includes boldly giving up a great career with Accenture to go for a brand-new adventure with Flatiron Health. You’ll hear about James experiences including:

  • growing up in NYC as a first-generation American
  • student leadership in FEMBA Council
  • travel to Finland, Sweden and India, plus a quick Munich visit for Oktoberfest
  • attending two classmate weddings: Sahara and Henry in Dallas, plus Dan in Italy!
  • ​​​​​​​being in the All-Day Saturday Section: What house in Harry Potter was his section most like?
  • doing BCO, the Business Creation Option
  • earning first place in the Gilead Biotech Case Competition
  • being our Commencement Speaker on June 11. 2021
