Why I chose Johnson

I chose to be part of the Johnson MBA program because of its distinctive entrepreneurial opportunities and leading sustainability center. My specific interests are entrepreneurship, social innovation, and impact investing. Johnson has amazing resources and engaging faculty to support my goals.

The most rewarding experiences thus far are the “hands-on” projects which offer engagement with a variety of field experts and the opportunity to condition my leadership skills. I’ve had diverse experiences such as working as a Fund Manager for Big Red Venture Fund and as a Consultant for a non-profit in the Sustainable Global Enterprise Immersion. The quality and breadth of my experiences have been invaluable.
