Elle Dalconzo is a junior at Olin from Los Angeles, CA, majoring in Finance and Marketing. She’s active on campus as a facilitator for The Date, a TA for ACCT 2610, a member of Alphi Phi Sorority and Delta Sigma Pi Fraternity.

The Olin BSBA Undergraduate Program will be highlighting students throughout the semester to share their experiences both inside and outside the classroom.

I was able to ask Elle a few questions about her experience this summer as an intern with Brunello Cucinelli in Manhattan. Elle learned of the internship through Professor Sneider’s Luxury Goods course. The Luxury Goods course was taught on campus in the spring and then traveled to New York over spring break to visit brands such as Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdale’s, Burberry, DKNY, Loro Piana, and more.

She had the opportunity to work in the men’s and women’s showroom which included staging product before appointments, assisting clients in selecting and recording styles, as well as prepare (photograph and swatch) style orders for individual accounts.

When I asked about her experience with the Olin Immersion Program, she had this to say:

“I would definitely recommend any Olin Immersion program. You never know who you are going to meet. I know it sounds cheesy and cliché, but one of the pillars of the Olin Business School is experiential learning. Use the immersion programs to delve into something that peaks your interest, or something you have never heard of. When looking for an internship, go for an adventure, not a resume blurb. Adventures make connections too, and summers are too long to waste in a poorly lit copy room!”

Thank you to Elle for letting us feature her in our first Student Spotlight of the year!
