Student Spotlight

Samyukta Hm, current Evening MBA student talks about her experience at the Career Fair.

Talking to alums, Industry folks and my fellow cohorts during career-fairs, it not only motivates but helps reshape my thoughts about unconventional career paths. You never know something better awaits you if you don’t step out of your comfort zone!"
