Account Manager

I put purpose into practice by…

engaging with a dynamic group of people to push accounts forward.

Arooj has been working in higher education for 12 years in the U.S. and abroad. Having begun her career in admissions and enrollment, she journeyed onto student affairs, and most recently worked in advancement at her alma mater. Her career path offers a unique and broader understanding of the nuances of higher education and the mechanics of institutions.

At AJ, Arooj is focused on client satisfaction. She supports higher ed clients from the beginning to the end of a project by managing day-to-day needs and concerns. She ensures that clients not only get the results they want, but that their expectations are exceeded at every turn.

Arooj’s greatest achievement in higher education was working to support the nation of Qatar in establishing best practices and policies for student affairs at Education City. In her work, she collaborated with key stakeholders, including the Qatari government, the Qatar Foundation, and the six American institutions with branch campuses at Education City.

As her personal mantra, Arooj believes education can change the world and that the value of your degree can be life-altering. “The work of academic institutions has such great impact on the individuals who are able to attend, as well as the community of which universities are a part. I believe that supporting institutions of higher education is how you can build a thoughtful and compassionate world that can create a better future,” said Arooj.

When asked why she loves working at AJ, Arooj said, “Supporting the work of universities means that we’re supporting students, families, communities, the country, and the world. What AJ does to help universities elevate their messages can ripple beyond just an event. That’s why I work here… we want to help make a better world with our clients.”
