As a nimble student at Bentley, what made you choose to do a business major as well as an LSM at Bentley?: I believe that in order to be a successful leader in the business world, it is crucial to have an understanding of how the rest of the world functions. Through my LSM in Global Perspectives, I will learn about the global economy and how business is handled in different countries. Ultimately, this combination of business and international studies will serve me well in my future endeavors and career goals.
What is your favorite LSM related course?: I loved my GLS 102 Comparative Government and Politics course with Professor Garvey. His class sparked my interest in international political affairs and challenged my ability to think in diverse ways.
