Lauren Zaleski

Class 2013

Lauren Zaleski is a born and raised New York City native.  With experience in the luxury lifestyle and entertainment industries, Lauren counts her city as her first and most influential teacher. Observing subcultures, trends, and what is considered “hip” from street level on up has been a part of her life from a young age.  


As she begins this new chapter, Lauren holds close her fascination with her fellow humans, their stories, and how they connect.  She is on a quest to cultivate and preserve authenticity and believes it to be endangered in this time of information overload.


Lauren is hungry for life and grateful to have found a “tribe” within the Branding program.  

The curriculum for The Masters in Branding Program allows students to create frameworks to guide brand, design and business development, critically evaluate brand, business, marketing and design strategies and Master the intellectual link between leadership and creativity. Learn more...
