Lauren Sanders: Alumni Success Story


With 10 years of experience, Lauren Sanders (‘06, ‘08) is making the business of accounting personable as the talent development supervisor at Brown Smith Wallace, one of the Midwest’s most prominent accounting firms.

Since 2010, Sanders has developed programs to increase personal relationships with the company such as IMPACT–a college leadership program— and Brown Smith Wallace University as a way to provide professional development programs for its employees.

While working full time, Sanders received both her bachelor’s degree in business administration and MBA by taking night courses at MBU.

“Missouri Baptist University’s faculty always had the students’ best interest at heart and made it known that they were there for the students,” Sanders said. ”They built relationships with us.”

Just as the MBU faculty dedicated time to build relationships with Sanders, she now continues the practice through her professional calling.

A story of shining on.
