The diverse curriculum and experiences at Albion helped prepare me for a business world that is ever-changing. On a given day at Albion, I'd have class transitions from "The 1960s" (an American history course) to "Managerial Accounting." In an entrepreneurial role, you need to wear both creative and analytical hats, often at the same time. Albion taught me to stretch my mind in a variety of ways.
