Where Are They Now: Ami Doshi, University of Southern California

Eller PDC Alumni Stories


Ami Doshi graduated in May 2009 with a major in Business Management. During her time at Eller, she served as Vice President and then as President of Eller College Student Council.

What are you doing these days?

Currently I am a full-time dual-degree graduate student earning my Master in Business Administration and Master in Real Estate Development from USC Marshall School of Business and USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, respectively. I plan to reposition my career towards real estate, specifically focused on affordable housing and multifamily developments.

Personally, I am a huge fan of nature and try to get outdoors as often as possible. With many friends still in the Bay Area, I find myself traveling there frequently. I am also a yogi and I’m happy to be back in Southern California as most of my family is here and it has been great to be closer to my parents and brother.

What has your journey been like since graduating from Eller? 

Since I graduated 5 years ago, I explored a career in consulting with Deloitte Consulting and Primitive Logic. In between working at these firms I traveled to India and lived there for a year volunteering in slum communities in the scope of life skills within children and adolescents.

Do you have any advice for students?

Ask as many questions as you can to truly understand concepts and advice. Be prepared for meetings and be on time. Last, but definitely not least….send thank you notes with details about why you are thankful.
