'08 VSB

Consultant, Bain & Company

Favorite class at VSB and why?

Case Studies in American Industries. Dr. Kelly was a fantastic professor who facilitated lively classroom discussion and fostered a great learning environment. I was able to gain a unique perspective into how a wide variety of businesses operated and the challenges they faced.

Most important thing you learned?

That working with motivated people I enjoyed being around was key to my success in the long-term.

Favorite Villanova memory?

Competing in VSB’s Start-Up Challenge with some of my best friends. We won Best Overall Business Model and had a great time putting together our pitch over the course of two intense weeks. We still talk about it to this day.
