Paul Niedfeldt is our awesome alumni from 2013-2014 cohort. He is married and has a wonderful wife and four kids. He is from Crystal Lake, IL and is currently living in Charlottesville, VA attending UVA Darden for the MBA. He began learning Chinese when he was serving in the Texas Houston South Mission. He joined the Chinese Flagship program to experience life in another country and improve his grasp of the Chinese language and culture. This summer, he will be interning with BCG as a Summer Consultant before joining full-time following graduation. In the future, he hopes to work with/for Fortune 500 companies, advising them on critical operational and strategic decisions both domestically and globally.

He said, “I particularly enjoyed the two internships I completed during my capstone experience. Being able to experience real life in China was incredible, and I don’t know of any other program that provides you with the same level of immersion into a foreign culture.”
