Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?

Sonali Shah

Sonali Shah may have a few months left before graduation, but she is breathing easy knowing that a fulltime position awaits. In June 2016, Shah will begin working as a tax associate for PricewaterhouseCoopers where she interned last summer.

Shah’s offer comes at the conclusion of a busy four years as a Rutgers Business School (RBS) and Honors College student. Shah double-majored in accounting and supply-chain management and enjoyed success in both fields with a first-place win in the Institute for Supply Management national case competition on the heels of her internship.Shah was one of an RBS trio that emerged victorious in last semester’s competition and cites that victory as her greatest RU–N achievement.

“Supply-chain management is my passion and accounting is something that I have always wanted to learn how to do,” Shah, of Ocean Township, New Jersey, said.

During her time at RBS, Shah joined organizations like Women BUILD (Business Undergraduates in Leadership Development) and the mentoring program TeamUp, which have helped her grow into a more confident, assertive young professional.Shah says that her experiences transformed her from a shy first-year student who avoided networking opportunities, into someone who embraced them – recently serving as a board member for an RBS supply-chain meet and greet committee.

After graduation, Shah looks forward to becoming a certified public accountant with the goal of eventually opening her own tax practice.
