MBA 2021 | Brand and Product Management


Collin Masters graduated summa cum laude from Bradley University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Finance. He was honored as the Outstanding Finance Graduate of the Class of 2015. Upon graduation, he accepted a role with CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA) as an associate in the Federal Tax Strategies team. In this role, he consulted with clients in order to maximize their federal tax credit and incentives. Following his promotion to senior associate, he was tasked with leading teams and managing projects. During his time with CLA, he consistently delivered results through numerous personnel changes and constantly changing deadlines. He also consistently improved processes and found ways to increase efficiency year-over-year.

Collin is passionate about youth education specifically related to financial literacy and volunteered regularly with Junior Achievement. Additionally, he was a grant reviewer for the CliftonLarsonAllen Foundation whose mission is to support youth education, career development, and entrepreneurship.

Outside of work, Collin enjoys spending time with his wife, Becca, and their dog, Wrigley. He is also a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan and is thrilled his favorite team is no longer the “lovable losers”. He may also be found inside a grocery store impulse-buying the fancy new flavor of ice cream. In fact, his tendency to fall victim to impulse-buying consumer products is what originally piqued his interest in Brand Management. He’s excited to pursue his MBA at the Wisconsin School of Business in the Center for Brand and Product where he hopes to sharpen his skills as a leader.
