Since graduating from Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies in 2021, Audrey Adam has been on the move.

Adam joined Deloitte in the summer of 2021 and has worked on several technology-focused projects for various Retail E-commerce clients as a consultant and Product Owner. With the ability to work remotely, Adam found herself with the freedom to explore different cities and regions. 

Rather than renewing her lease after spending her first year out of school in New York City, she opted for a more nomadic lifestyle, living in Airbnbs and experiencing the diversity of landscapes that America has to offer. She has lived in New York City, Philadelphia, Florida, California, Arizona, Colorado, Massachusetts, and has finally settled in Newport Beach, Calif.

“I have always loved the nomadic and simplistic lifestyle,” said Adam, who earned a bachelor of science in information studies at the iSchool. 

Although she has had many temporary homes in the past year, Adam says Syracuse has always felt like a special, second home. Her father attended SU after coming to America from Lebanon as a teenager, and her older sister Sara continued the family tradition and graduated from the iSchool in 2018. Sara also accepted a job at Deloitte after graduation, like Adam did, and still works there as a senior consultant. 

The iSchool was an easy choice for Adam, who was interested in a lot of classes the school offered, such as web design. She still often uses skills she learned in a class she took with Professor Dan Cohen, who taught core consulting practices.

“I work with and use terms like scrum, agile, product owner, sprint planning, etc. every day, and in the class, we had tests and projects about exactly those concepts,” she said. “Learning those concepts ahead of time definitely helped in my career so far.”

At Deloitte, Adam works as a consultant within the company’s Customer and Marketing practice, specifically focused on retail and ecommerce projects. She is especially fascinated by product management for ecommerce mobile apps and has most recently been working with a team on building a new ecommerce retail app for a popular retail brand. 

“I am in a role requiring collaboration between the technical, design and client teams,” she said. “It has always been interesting to me to work on a project that starts from bare bones requirements gathering, through UI/UX design, and now we’re in the development phase. The team and people I work with on this project make it meaningful to me.”

Outside of work, Adam is creative in the kitchen and has a passion for cooking and baking. At Syracuse, she ran a small business, “Bread by Aud,” and biked around campus her senior year delivering her fresh, made-to-order artisan bread. 

“Long term, I would love to open my own bakery or café one day,” Adam said. “But for now I am grateful to be learning and growing many skills in my current career.”
