Student: German Freiwald, MBA 12
Interning with: San Francisco Unified School District, San Francisco, CA
Thrilled to be with SFUSD because: "I get to work on projects which have a direct impact on children."
Can't believe he's getting the chance to: Use his data analysis skills to help SFUSD make strategic management decisions. "All of my work leads to the district utilizing their resources as efficiently as possible so that we are better able to close the opportunity gap for children."
Already he's learned: "How to ask the right questions, use data to drive decision making, and influence the strategy of the Early Education Department."
Advancing career goals by: Learning how districts are run and getting access to all of the key decision makers. "It is a very resource constrained and complex environment that demands the best of me everyday. As someone that wants to work in education, this internship is providing me with invaluable perspective on the challenges urban school districts face."
