Focus Area in Social Sciences - BA in Management & International Business, Virginia Tech
I spent nearly a decade in an exciting, but ultimately unsatisfying career. With insights gained while raising my two children, I realized that purpose is what was lacking in my professional life. Focusing on humanity’s most complex problems through the study of Sustainable Development has pushed my curiosity to new heights. The MSD is helping me to build a foundation across a range of sciences, learn the practical value of tools and methods, and appreciate how interdependent our world truly is.
The MSD is for me…
... an opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge I will need to work in service of people and our planet by coupling the practical lessons of my business education and career with an understanding of the systems and sciences that describe and define our shared ecosystem.
