Sean Cooney

Management, '22

Sean Cooney was Seattle-bound after graduation. He graduated from the Barney School of Business with a degree in management and a minor in marketing, then moved to Washington state where he began a position with Amazon in their Retail Undergraduate Program (RUP). He was hired before graduation and believes his time at UHart provided real-life experience in preparation for the workforce. Learn more.

BAR 211 was a critical class for me. Getting experience with mock interviews and resume building helped me be more confident and also taught me how to think critically in a real workplace environment.
