    Concentration/IndustrY:  Social Enterprise

    Hometown:  Eden Prairie, MN

    Words of Wisdom:  Choose a school where you feel like you click with the people and enjoy the community because the network you build in grad school is one that can last a lifetime

    Why I chose Goizueta:  The combination or rigorous academics and fun people, the small class size, and the fact that we're located in a large city with many opportunities

    "I was attracted to SE@G because I want to make a complete career switch and do something that I know gives back. I want to explore how I can bring my finance and operations background to a foundation and the fellowship provides a unique opportunity to learn from other students and the residents."

    "I love getting my hands dirty on the field more than anything else. And that’s exactly what SE@G offers. Field experiences through its Atlanta Programs and Travel Modules!!! This is in addition to the rich theoretical knowledge base through courses that link Business and the Society. SE@G also provides ample opportunities to understand the potential impacts today’s business can have on the society, and I believe it’s more than relevant now to understand these factors in a world that is aiming to achieve inclusive growth."
