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

"I look for efficiencies in what we do, either by contracting services with others or looking at costs in-house. While I can't say I use much of the econometrics and evaluation methods I learned, I did develop a way of analyzing my environment, always looking to improve its performance and profitability."

What advice would you give students in Economics?

"Definitely take the finance concentration. I did not and quite regret it."
