About Kat Marcan | Part-Time Flex MBA 2023
Kat is an ambitious 22-year-old, starting her first full-time position at Accenture while pursuing her MBA part-time. She grew up in the Bay Area, California, but has lived in Pittsburgh since 2016 when she started her undergrad at CMU. She graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering.
During her undergrad, Kat knew she enjoyed problem-solving and using her analytical skills, but did not feel confident that she would be happy long-term working in the Chemical Engineering industry. She has always been interested in business, so when chaos struck the world mid-2020, Kat decided to make the most of the situation and pursue her MBA much earlier than she was planning.
In Kat’s free time, you’ll find her outside (even if it’s freezing), walking neighborhoods, picnicking, or discovering cute coffee shops. She is active and loves lifting weight and practicing yoga. Recently, Kat has picked up tennis.
Kat expresses her creative side through Instagram. Her account (@katmar_can) serves as a personal lifestyle blog where she shares her ideas on healthy living, self-care, and her travel adventures. She also provides links for discounts for many of the products she uses and promotes!
In her undergrad, she was a member of a sorority on campus, Kappa Alpha Theta. Here, she served many leadership positions, including CEO/president of her chapter. Kat has a passion for empowering strong women through their academics, professions, and even physical abilities.
