Transcript

I first wanted to come to Lerner College of Business and Economics really because of the feel that I had for it. I did my first master’s degree here as well, in entrepreneurship and design. And just the connections that I made, the people, the internship experiences and other classroom experiences I was able to pursue while I was here, have been really important. We work with real companies, and they provide real solutions for real-life business problems. That’s been really impactful, and that really helped me to really get a feel for how innovation works in the real world. I think what defines a Lerner student is really just their passion for trying new things. The opportunities here to start your own club or make your mark on the school is really, really important. So a Lerner student is someone who is really capable of just pushing forward despite whatever obstacles there are. Take charge, see an opportunity, and just go for it.
