Academic Programs

"After spending over a year working on my research project, it was a powerful practice to step back and scrutinize how best to extrapolate and communicate the macro narrative I was attempting to tell. The Graduate Showcase pushed me to polish my research findings into a concise overview, which is an invaluable skill in the business world."  - Colette Cascarilla, 2016 MBA Graduate
