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

"Being an Economics graduate from Duke has largely helped in having a wider and more liberal understanding of problems and a more positive approach towards solving them. The real world situations discussed in the Economics courses as well as the subsidiary courses have subconsciously molded my approach while tackling a situation."

What advice would you give students in Economics?

"The advice I would give is, take a lot of different classes while still not compromising on developing domain knowledge. How to develop lateral thinking should be the key goal I feel."
