Kogod Decision Criteria: I was particularly interested in the MSSM program’s interdisciplinary design, which allowed me to combine science and policy studies while keeping a business perspective. Being in Washington, D.C., also gave me great networking opportunities and the chance to participate in important global discussions surrounding climate change, energy consumption and community relations.

Kogod Value: Inclusion and diversity, flexibility to customize the program according to my interests, and the school’s vision that profit and purpose are not opposites.
