“ As I began to take graduate classes during my time as an undergrad, I loved being surrounded by classmates with such a similar passion for Supply Chain as me, some already with professional career experience. Getting to take these courses early on helped open doors to internships and research opportunities, and it affirmed my goal of a Supply Chain career. ”
