Working as part of a large team and creating a marketing plan for a real-life firm in my Marketing Strategy course helped me develop in ways that extend far beyond the classroom walls. I was able to learn so many different things from so many different people in the College of Business. There are countless networking opportunities around every corner. My experience both in and out of the classroom allowed me to grow as a professional and as a person. Whether it was a teacher or a guest speaker or even a friend, my path to success was shaped by the people around me throughout my time in the College of Business.
