At Duke. I am pursuing a major in public policy and certificates in both markets and management as well as policy journalism and media studies. I am passionate about the intersection of communication, business and government and hope to pursue a career that bridges the three. I have previously interned at a leading global public affairs agency in D.C. as well as at CBS This Morning and Face The Nation. Aside from school, I am an avid runner, major foodie and am moderately addicted to iced coffee.

My name is Max Moser, and I am senior from Bregenz, Austria. I am pursuing a major in Political Science, a minor in Sociology, and the MMS certificate. The MMS certificate has allowed me to explore my interests in a variety of business areas and guided me in discovering my passion for marketing and more specifically brand management. I also enjoy soccer, hiking, and skiing.

I am from New York City and am hoping to go into marketing when I graduate. This past summer I interned at the Estee Lauder Companies with Clinique but am interested in marketing and business development in other industries as well!

I am planning to major in Public Policy with a minor in Gender/Feminist Studies and African American Studies, and a certificate in Markets and Management Studies (MMS). I am aiming to work as a marketing/brand management consultant in the future with a focus on promoting positive images for the overall health of minority consumers. One day, I hope to be able to open my own marketing firm geared towards making advertising more friendly for female and POC consumers and employees.

I am extremely interested in the bridge between the history of politics and economics, the way they overlap, and the effect they have on one another. As an ambassador I am excited to meet and learn more about the MMS program, while benefiting from the community that is involved with the growth of the students here at Duke. I enjoy learning about the technology and the organizations within it and hope to work in the financial industry.

I love being a part of MMS because it not only provides students insight into the business world, but also allows students to develop their personal interests. I hope that by being an ambassador I will be able to promote the program to interested students.

I am very excited to get started with the MMS ambassador program! I hope to contribute to the program by hearing from students and implementing change they want to see.

I also enjoy running and am on the Duke Cross Country and Track team here at Duke.
