“It just amazes me how many of the faculty in the business school have real-world experience. It just takes it to the next level... My favorite course by far has got to be my 'Issues in Leadership' class. I want to get into leadership consulting when I graduate, and it’s really moved my interest in graduate school from getting my MBA to also getting my MS in organizational leadership as well as my Ph.D. in organizational behavior.”
