The most beneficial part of my SOM experience was being involved in the SOM student organizations and networking events. I had hands on experiences that could not have been taught in the classroom. I learned networking, leadership and public speaking. The School of Management taught me how to get out of my comfort zone and push myself to the next level. I learned the power of conversation and networking, while making a number of important business connections along the way.
