Jessica Frieder

I grew up in Princeton, NJ and went on to Dartmouth where I was a member of the Women's Lacrosse team. Over the last six years, I was able to merge my passion of sports with my career and work in the sports business industry. I worked for two different companies advising clients like Dell Technologies, MLB and the Brooklyn Nets, on their sponsorship strategies. Both companies I worked for went through major transactional changes and these experiences sparked my interest in understanding how these M&A deals came together and being part of the financial and strategic process from start to finish. I came to Ross to build a strong financial and business skillset, enhance my leadership skills and pivot into investment banking so I can help shape the future of the sports, media and entertainment industries. Ross was the perfect program for me because of the collaborative and support environment and the action-based learning opportunities. The community here is incredibly special and the 'Go Blue, Go Anywhere' mentality is so vibrant. Outside of the classroom, you can find me planning the next Happy Hour or group trip, playing golf or exploring the A2 outdoors, or at 'The Bus' - the official MBA football tailgate. Go Blue!
