As a military-affiliated student, Hannah Schield ’19 has lived in three states and attended four colleges over the past five years in her pursuit to obtain a degree. Her hard work will come to fruition when Schield receives her business administration degree with a concentration in supply chain management from the Cameron School of Business.
"Once the requirements of my degree are completed, what ultimately matters are not the courses listed on my transcript, but the sensibilities and habits of mind that I bring to my work, friends, family, and indeed, the rest of my life,” said Schield.
According to Schield, who is CSB’s “Outstanding Graduate” for the school of business and within the supply chain program, the knowledge she has gained during her studies brings immense value to organizations.
The Cameron School of Business has a number of new graduate level programs aimed at helping working professionals advance their careers. Emilee Draper is a student in UNCW's new Masters of Business Analytics Online Accelerated Program. She is excited to be able to apply the tools she is learning in the program to her new career in Media Analytics.

With an expected graduation year of 2019, Eva James takes her education seriously at the young age of 21. She is majoring in marketing strategy and minoring in digital arts and has maintained her mention on the Top 10 List for marketing concentrations for the last couple years. Though she keeps her eyes laser-focused on academic success, she knows how to relax with friends during her free time. She describes herself as a “happy-go-lucky” person who knows how to roll with the punches. When the stresses of everyday life get too overwhelming, Eva falls on her love of art for support by drawing sketches. We recently interviewed Eva about her experience at the business school.

Who am I?
As a north Jersey native, I always wanted to go to college out-of-state to experience something new. I heard about Cameron School of Business (CSB) through a recommendation and I liked what I had seen after researching—the quality of the academic programs, the high student graduation rate and the size of the university all appealed to me. I had never been to the Carolinas prior to coming to UNCW, but I decided to take the plunge by moving 500 miles away nonetheless. Of course, the fact that campus is close to the beach also helped my decision!
