January 6, 2011-A Crown and an MBA

Ashley Shaffer sees beauty in business. The 24-year-old Millstone (Monmouth County) resident, crowned Miss New Jersey 2009, is now pursuing a Master’s of Business Administration at the Rutgers Business School in Newark. As she tries to figure out her career path, Ashley plans to have a concentration in finance with some courses in marketing. She would like to go into sports management and public relations, though she has yet to settle on a career. Meanwhile, she is also helping to run the new student blog, “Through the Park: The Real Rutgers MBA Experience,” which explores the diverse and globally focused students in the Rutgers MBA program.
