What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? I’ve been interested in this program since I graduated from college five years ago. It was initially my intent to pursue an MBA. After realizing that none of the MBA programs I was looking at nurtured my creative side enough, I decided to enroll in the MSLCE program. I’m excited about this degree because I think it will provide a solid knowledge of the business side of creative industries . Starting out in the MSLCE program will also give me further insight into whether I still want an MBA and if so, what I wish to get out of an MBA program in the future, once I am armed with this degree.
What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? The networking (I am a textbook introvert but I’m looking forward to learning how to reach out and connect with people), the speakers, and hopefully some really interesting site visits and hands-on experiences (through projects and internships) down the line.
Where are you from? Miami, FL, USA
