How has being an Economics graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"It has guided my approach to problem solving and given me an understanding of the incentives that influence decision-making in the business world."

What advice would you give students in Economics?

"Only do it if it truly interests you. It is not a business degree. It will not automatically get you a job. However, the knowledge you learn will be applicable in any field you get into."
