Jessie Stettin, Segal Fellow

Jessie Stettin

2012 Brandeis Undergraduate Segal Fellow

Jessie Stettin completed his BA in business in 2013 from Brandeis University. He chose to continue his studies at the Brandeis International Business School, graduating in 2014 with his MA in international economics and finance. As a Brandeis student, Jessie was part of the Sun Life Financial Rotational Leadership Development Program in Waltham, Mass. He plans to use the business tools he learned in class to start a business in the “green sector.” Already demonstrating his ambition and entrepreneurial spirit, Jessie successfully created an on-campus bike-rental program for Brandeis students and expanded the already existing daily-rental program. One of his specific interests within the environmental field lies in sustainable agriculture, which led him to his a summer internship with the Queens County Farm located in his hometown of Queens, N.Y. Through hands-on farming experience, Jessie learned specific organic farming practices as well as the marketing and sales that go along with running an agricultural organization. Jessie was a 2011 recipient of the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship which allowed him to study art history and film in Amsterdam; he also had the opportunity to travel to Cuba with 30 members of the International Business School to review an economy in transition.
