The Power of Diversity
I’ve always had an interest in law, but I wanted to bring a managerial perspective to a legal setting. That led me to Northwestern’s JD-MBA Program.
"ONE OF THE GREATEST REWARDS HAD BEEN WORKING WITH SUCH A DIVERSE RANGE OF PEOPLE AND PERSONALITIES IN A TEAM-BASED SETTING."
The program attracts people who are leaders. They’re ready to go and willing to get things done. The program teaches you how to effectively and efficiently collaborate with others, and how to draw on your team’s collective background, knowledge and experience to make balanced and well-informed decisions.
One of the greatest rewards has been working with such a diverse range of people and personalities in a team-based setting. Someone always brings a new or different perspective to the table. You learn as much from them as you do in the classroom.
