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

"Developed a business theory mindset and have applied in all jobs post-graduation."

What advice would you give students in Economics?

"I'd recommend taking additional statistics classes, even if pursuing the BA...will help if looking to pursue an MBA down the road and better set a student up for delving into operations management coursework/theory."
