[lerner-blockquote quote=”What made my UD experience special was the freedom given to me by the faculty. They understand how quickly marketing changes in the real world, and were always open to letting me explore new points of view that challenged traditional book knowledge. Practicing this kind of innovative thinking helped me hone my problem solving skills and prepared me immensely for a career path in start-ups and digital marketing. I still keep in touch with several faculty members today to share ideas and continue to fine-tune my skills.” citation=”Stephen Murphy, Class of 2009, LocalVox”]
