Howdy folks! My name is Andy Glaze, and I’m looking forward to being one of your Peer Coaches this year. I am a 2nd year in the Jenkins MBA program, concentrating in Finance with Certificates in Data, Leadership and Operations. Over the summer, I worked with the SBTDC as an intern in their Technology Commercialization consultant program.
I graduated the University of Texas in 2003 with a BA in History and minors in Philosophy and Biology and got my Juris Doctorate from Southern Methodist University in 2003. Before pursuing my MBA, I practiced as a transactional attorney in the energy industry, focusing on ownership analysis, risk identification and mitigation, and transactional drafting and negotiation.
The CMC team at the Jenkins MBA program has been fantastic to work with, and I look forward to supporting them and you in the fall.

Hello everyone! My name is Hunter Hall and I am a rising second year in the Jenkins MBA program. I am from Brevard, a small town in the mountains close to Asheville, NC. Prior to getting my MBA at NC State, I worked as a Lead Visual Designer at a branding firm for a couple of years and as a Communications and Advancement Associate for a non-profit private school in Colorado. I attended UNC Asheville for undergrad where I received my degree in New Media (a combination of computer science, graphic design, and anything media) and minored in Business. I was also a student-athlete at UNCA, having the opportunity to play on the division 1 women’s tennis team. Over the summer I have been interning for a Fortune 50 firm, Lowe’s Home Improvement, where I joined their Online Business Solutions team as an intern in the e-commerce space. I have learned a great deal about the retail industry and hope to return upon completing my MBA. The Jenkins program and the CMC have been incredibly supportive throughout my journey, and I am very excited to join their team as a peer coach for the 2021-2022 school year. This program has opened all kinds of opportunities for me and I’m excited to be a part of the support team for the incoming first-year class. Welcome to the pack!
