B.A. Leadership Studies, University Of Richmond
Richmond, VA, 1997
Leadership Studies was a unique major that, at the time, was the only undergraduate degree of its kind in the country. I was initially attracted to the Jepson School of Leadership Studies because it focused on skills and knowledge that could be applied to a wide variety of different fields, and these studies on corporate leadership and culture have been more applicable than I ever imagined; many companies hold dozens of seminars and sessions annually to educate their managers and employees about topics such as leadership, management, ethics, personality indicators and more that we studied at the Jepson School.
