Why I went to business school: Business school is the most applicable degree you can get. It is something that is hard to teach, but you develop through exposure to different concepts. 

One thing I learned at Smith I’ll never forget is the importance of the Time Value of Money concept.

A highlight of my time at Smith: The amount of activities within ComSoc, there are multiple clubs for every niche where you can develop employable experience.

Best advice to future students: Commerce is looking for motivated students who go beyond just academics. Don’t spend all your time by the book, get out and be creative.
