Five Minutes with Alec Brown ’18

Alec Brown enrolled in the MSA program mere weeks after earning dual bachelor’s degrees in mathematics and economics from Western Kentucky University. During the MSA, he and four teammates completed a practicum project sponsored by the Museums of Fine Arts of Boston and Houston. Upon graduation, he accepted a job offer with Bain & Company, a prestigious management consultancy, and has since been promoted to Manager, Data Science within Bain’s Advanced Analytics Group. 

Alec has volunteered on the MSA admissions committee, interviewing candidates alongside fellow alumni and Institute faculty and staff. Lindy Bustabad was among the candidates Alec interviewed for admission to the MSA Class of 2022. Here, Lindy reversed roles and interviewed Alec about his experiences during and after his time at the Institute.
