Where did you go to graduate school and what did you study?I graduated from the Johnson School of Business with an MBA and the School of Industrial and Labor Relations with an MILR (Masters of Industrial and Labor Relations) in 2010. While at the Johnson School, I studied marketing and while at ILR, I focused on organizational psychology. I spent two and a half cold years in Ithaca, NY for my dual degree.
What are your top 3 takeaways (academic or otherwise) from your time in graduate school?
- Building your network with your classmates, professors, and alumni is just as important as getting good grades.
- It’s important to learn frameworks, it’s more important to apply them to real business situations.
- Always assume you are problem solving with limited to no resources. This is often the reality once you get into a job after school and it leads to more creative problem solving.
