“At Saint Mary’s, I majored in Business Administration with a double concentration in Entrepreneurship and Finance. In my 4 years, I learned how to think with a business-minded perspective, how to problem solve, and gained many of the technical skills necessary to excel as a professional. I am grateful to the professors who took a great amount of time to share their experiences and knowledge with me to ensure my education was world class.”
