My finance degree from Gies Business gave me the foundation to understand what makes a company successful and how to analyze where things might be going wrong to improve for the future. My education gave me the confidence I needed to tackle just about anything that came my way.
Seeing our established alumni making a difference in the world is so beneficial. In the classroom, you learn the straight finance and straight information technology, but I think talking to alumni who have made a difference is ultimately whats going to drive us to do exactly what theyre doing.
