My experience at Daniels prepared me to lead with character and conviction. The proformas and other analysis tools used in my courses are still useful for me in my day-to-day operations. More important than knowing how to analyze potential projects, I believe that conducting yourself in an ethical manner is crucial to having a long-term, successful career in the commercial real estate industry.”
