Most memorable experience at Drucker
It was a thrill to beat out all the larger, better funded B-Schools in the country to take first place in the LEEDS Net Impact Case Competition. My husband and father held the fort at home while I pulled a near all-nighter in Boulder with three other Drucker Students, working on a presentation and proposal for the competition. This has been the most memorable experience so far, made possible because of the wonderful students who go to Drucker. I learn a great deal through my classmates. They are mature and professional. They truly make Drucker different from other business schools.

Experience in the classroom
The classes at the Drucker School have allowed me to reflect on myself and my past experiences from a different perspective. The last decade I have constantly been in motion, and spending time hearing lectures, writing papers, discussing with my peers, and reading new books, has given me the opportunity to pause, step back and look at both the forest and the trees.

How Drucker prepares me for real-life success
Learning and managing myself will prepare me for every aspect of life.
