Every professor is so tuned into the big issues happening in the business world, and they’re able to translate that insight into powerful lessons
Why did you decide to come to Drucker?
The flexibility of the Drucker School curriculum and its strong relationship with other colleges provides me the opportunity to study corporate strategy and sustainability on one campus and with experts in the field. The school’s high rankings didn’t hurt either.

Career goals
After I graduate from the Drucker School, I plan to begin a career developing long-term business strategies that are anchored in sustainability concepts. I’m especially interested in bringing new ideas and technologies from the design lab into the board room.

Most memorable experience at Drucker so far?
I’ve been most surprised by how friendly Drucker students are with each other. Whether there’s a business forum in Pasadena, a student club meeting late at night, or a pub crawl in town, there’s always students to do it with!

Experience in the classroom
I’ve been incredibly impressed with the professors at Claremont. Every professor is so tuned into the big issues happening in the business world, and they’re able to translate that insight into powerful lessons.

Places you like visiting while in Claremont? 
I love bouldering on the rocks around Claremont, and I wish I could make it out to the beaches in Orange County more often. But for now, I spend most of my time outside of class on the third floor of the Honnald/Mudd library with a stack of text books.
