Blending Business, Language, and Leadership: Bradley's Chapman Journey
Bradley '23 is a shining example of the enriching blend of academia, extracurricular engagement, and a commitment to making the most of his Chapman Experience.
As a double major, Bradley is grateful for the personalized education that Chapman offers.
"A double major felt like the perfect challenge for me-a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with emphases in International Business and Finance and a Bachelor of Arts in French," Bradley reflected.
Beyond the classroom, Bradley's love for Chapman is with the people and organizations that make the campus feel like home. "The Chapman Ambassadors Program, Triathlon Club, French Club, and my fraternity- I've been fortunate to be part of incredible communities that shaped my journey."
Graduating in May 2023 opened doors to new horizons. Bradley delved into finance through a summer internship at Harvey & Company in Newport Beach. "It was a real eye- opener, seeing the practical applications of what I learned in the classroom," Bradley explained, his experience bridging academia and the professional world.
Now, pursuing his MBA as a part of the Argyros College of Business & Economics' Integrated 4+1 MBA cohort, Bradley is gearing up for the next chapter.
Chapman has set me up for the next stage of my life, both academically and professionally. The MBA program is a natural progression, and I'm excited about the opportunities it opens up for my career in finance, ideally in venture capital or private equity.

Bradley was awarded the Dean's Merit Scholarship, turning his Chapman dreams into a financial reality. Because of his opportunity to attend Chapman, he recognizes the profound impact of scholarships and the Chapman Fund.
"It's not just about financial assistance," he explained. "The Chapman Fund supports the state-of-the-art facilities and programs that enrich our campus life. It's the backbone of the thriving community and the personalized education that defines Chapman."
For Bradley, Chapman isn't just a university; it's a transformative journey.
I would not be who I am today without the leadership and guidance from professors, mentors, and friends I have attained from Chapman. I cannot picture myself anywhere else.
