“My subject combination was formed through an interest in business strategy and innovation. I felt that a Management major would give me a fundamental understanding of core management practices, and an Entrepreneurship minor would complement it by offering unique insights into business development. This pairing gave me an understanding of business operations from a management perspective. In my career to date this has been helpful in quickly identifying and contributing to businesses' needs and seeing the full picture, which has provided opportunities for interesting and unique roles.”
