What has surprised you most about majoring in business? (and why?)
The most surprising part about majoring in business is the numerous avenues to get to your goals. I used to think that there was one specific path you could not deviate from, but a career path is almost never linear. There are so many great opportunities that present themselves and you have to decipher which of them may be best for you.
What advice would you give to a student looking to major in a business-related field?
My advice would be that it is OK to not know what you exactly want to do early on. I came to UMass focused on finding my passion and dream career path right away, but it doesn’t always work that way. Be open to all opportunities as there is something to learn from all experiences. Get different types of experiences and start early to figure out what you don’t like.
