How was the MMS certificate program helpful when deciding on a career path? 
The MMS Certificate curriculum allowed me to explore my interests in several different areas of business. Additionally, the program’s diverse course offering helped me to develop my professional skills as I began to pursue career opportunities.

How did the MMS certificate help you prepare for your current position? 
Many of the courses in the program encourage teamwork and empower students to be innovative and original. Developing the ability to work harmoniously with different types of people has proven to be extremely useful in my current position.
 
What advice would you give students?
Throughout my studies at Duke, I found that many of the Political Science and Markets & Management professors had unique and robust professional backgrounds prior to teaching. I highly recommend getting to know your professors, and learning about their ‘real world’ experiences. They are an excellent resource for developing your career aspirations and understanding how to apply your education post-graduation.
