Business Administration (BA): Emphasis in Marketing
"Everything hinges to some degree on marketing, the art of selling - the reason why people but what they buy. I would say the reason why I originally chose marketing as opposed to any other business emphasis was because marketing gave me the opportunity to use my creativity. Marketers need to be creative and versatile in formulating new products, advertising strategies and in public relations."
"Even after a few years after leaving St. Andrews, your senior class by far had the most impact on my career thus far- so I thank you again for putting such high expectations on quality, hard work and results."
