“Every day here, students work together, in and outside of the classroom, to make this a better place.”
If anybody had told me in high school that, at some point, money and status would be a given—that these would come for me—I would have laughed. For a long time, I worked purely to attain these and these alone. But as I worked, I came to understand that business is as much about good organizations as it is about good deals or, in my line, good trades. To succeed, businesses need to build strong relationships. And managers need the skills to do that. When I was considering schools, I knew I wanted to go to a place that understands this. I discovered I was right. Every day here students work together, outside the classroom, to make this a better place. It’s incredibly selfless. And ultimately successful.
