What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? MSLCE interested me because I wanted a program that supplemented my current education in music and communications with a business curriculum that encourages creativity.

What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I am most excited about learning business fundamentals as they pertain to creative individuals/businesses. Also, the summer quarter internship will be a great way to apply my education to a professional setting and advance my career.
