What were you looking for in a business school?
I sought expertise from a top institution that would advance my career and my network.
What advice do you have for prospective students?
Why did you choose Daniels for your graduate degree?
I chose Daniels because I had the opportunity to become an expert in a particular field, as well as opportunities outside the classroom like Leading at the Edge, Net Impact and case competitions. I also appreciated how friendly and caring faculty and staff were before applying to the master’s program. DU is also a nationally-ranked private institution.
What has surprised you the most about business school?
No one is an expert. All business professionals are just experimenting or reading from other self-titled experts. A successful business is a combination of beginner’s luck (read The Alchemist!), intuition and talent.
Is there a particular professor at Daniels who really stands out?
Michael Myers is a passionate marketing professor. He’s a game-changer in academia. I never thought I could earn four graduate credits for attending South by Southwest (SXSW) and writing about my experience.
How have you evolved as a leader during your time at Daniels?
I got involved with student organizations and case competitions to practice leadership skills and gain exposure to real world business problems. I have acquired patience and collaboration skills.
