Prior to Ross I worked in the technology industry, first spending four years at a start-up that was acquired by Amazon, and then working for the last year as an independent marketing & strategy consultant. The most valuable lesson I took away from these experiences was that people make all the difference in determining your happiness and success at work and in life. When I visited Ross, I quickly learned that not only does the program place a high value on collaboration, but there are also incredible resources for people who share my interest in pursuing a career in human capital. This focus on people, combined with the opportunities to challenge yourself through experiential learning and the unrivaled school spirit, made the decision to choose Ross a very simple one. Every day I spend on campus validates my belief that Ross is the right place for me, and I can only imagine how much more I will come to appreciate the experience in my two years here.
