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

"I got my first job at a small start-up called Yext because the founder was a Duke Alum. I worked at Yext for 8 years and the company is now publicly traded on NYSE."

What advice would you give students in Economics?

"Get an additional major. Economics alone will get drowned out."
