What do you wish you would have known before deciding on MIT?
I spent some time worrying about finances, but I’ve realized the opportunities to fund your graduate education at MIT are endless.

Why did you decide to ENROLL at MIT for your graduate school?
I’ve always been at the crossroads of engineering and business. I had a really great engineering experience as an undergraduate that I wanted to continue, and I also wanted to translate the leadership and management skills that I learned in the military to business. The world-class education that MIT offers speaks for itself, but what really drew me to enroll was the Leaders for Global Operations program and all the inspiring graduates making a positive impact on this world.
