Jessica Feinstein ’07
Associate Brand Manager, Unilever
New York, NY
After nearly two years with SC Johnson’s consumer products company, Jessica Feinstein knew that she wanted to pursue a career as a brand manager — and that an MBA would open doors. An associate brand development manager at Unilever, Jessica focuses on food and manages cross-functional teams that work to develop new products.
“What’s great about consumer products brand management is that it’s a lot like running your own small business,” Jessica says. “I love this entrepreneurial aspect, and I also want to launch my own business at some point.
“At Columbia, I was in the Greenhouse Program, which is an amazing opportunity. If you want to start your own business, the program makes that possible. You are exposed to venture capitalists, investors, and people who really care about your ideas and know what it takes to bring them to the next level.”
