Michael Weiss

MBA Class of 2017


I am originally from New London County, and a 2010 graduate of New York University. After completing my bachelor’s degree in Music Business, I spent two years as a touring musician, having the opportunity to play in festivals and tours throughout North America. After departing music in 2012, I joined a residential property management firm based in Southeastern Connecticut as a property manager overseeing communities in CT, MA, and RI. During my tenure, I specialized in stabilizing distressed properties through capital improvement projects aimed at increasing marketability and ultimately, occupancy. I chose to pursue an MBA after seeing the profound differences in abilities between those with whom I was working who had the degree, and those who did not. As a school with a real estate specialization within the MBA program, the UConn School of Business was a top choice. Post-graduation I plan to return to my previous place of employment with a focus on acquisitions.
