“While I was at BC Law, I came to appreciate that the practice of law naturally requires an understanding of business and the ability to manage and to lead. So I decided to pursue an MBA, and the Carroll School was the obvious choice. The dual-degree program provided a good balance. In law school, I learned to think critically as an individual. At the Carroll School, where the primary focus is on team-building, I was able to use that skill in the context of a team. For the Diane Weiss Consulting Competition, for example, my team worked with an impressive biotechnical company to identify an issue or process that the company needed to address. As a team, we analyzed the issue, developed strategies and steps to address it, and provided the client company with our recommendations. Presenting them in front of the company’s high-ranking officials was a priceless experience."
"As a senior associate at Nixon Peabody, one of the nation’s largest law firms, I draw on my Carroll School education every day. Every decision I make there is firmly rooted in the business acumen I gained at Boston College. I especially value BC’s emphasis on doing well in business by doing good for others. Carroll School students are taught not only to create profit or great returns, but also to consider how our actions will impact society in general.”
