Leverage Your Campus, Your Community, Your Network
Watch highlights from last year
The Executive Summit was a fantastic opportunity to continue my professional growth, which was jump-started by the executive master’s program. At the summit I reconnected with old peers, while networking with new and diverse professionals.
