In Their Own Words

Our Alumni

Sustainable Business students come from diverse backgrounds, with a variety of academic and professional experiences, but with one thing in common: the drive to become global business leaders.
Nicole Popp

The ability to work with companies through my capstone and Global Business Consulting elective gave me invaluable opportunities to apply my class knowledge in the field. I learned an endless amount of applicable skills that I use in my current job, from navigating a greenhouse gas inventory to conducting a materiality assessment using sustainability reporting frameworks such as SASB and GRI.

Throughout the program, I had the pleasure of connecting with incredible people from whom I found mentors and friends. We also had the opportunity to hear from the former CEO of Unilever, Paul Polman, who how business sustainability is mission critical. In the end, I grew both personally and professionally.

The hands-on experience I got in the MS in Sustainable Business program has proven invaluable in my career. Taking what I learned in the classroom and applying it to the two consulting projects I was working on taught me how to transfer skills and knowledge over to a real-world setting.
