Taking part in the Scholars program was the best decision I could’ve made during college. I always had an interest in government but I wasn’t sure how I could connect that with my passion for the business world. Michael Best Strategies was an amazing example of how well the two can be connected and leveraged against one another. The Strategies team is dynamic and driven and kept me learning every single day.
