Richie Huang '13, Operations Program Manager at Apple
Since graduating from Denison, Economics and International Studies double major Richie Huang ’13 got his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management and started at Apple.
Originally from Shandong, China, Huang received both an MBA from Kellogg and an M.S. in Design Innovation from Northwestern’s school of engineering and applied science before joining the technology giant.
During graduate school, Huang interned at Apple as an Operations Program Manager. “I had never worked in a company that was anywhere near the size of Apple before. Frankly, I thought I would not like working in a company that large. Quite surprisingly, I found many aspects of Apple to be similar to a startup: things move super fast; teams are nimble and scrappy when it comes to solving new problems; and thinking outside of the box is highly encourage (if not a must). I was challenged and enjoyed every single day of my twelve-week internship.”
