Anne-Fleur Vaartjes, Dual Degree Class of 2018

“I took an elective taught by the CEO of an investment research and analytics firm. Learning from someone who is actually applying what he is teaching every day was a truly insightful experience. Doing something as an assignment that others are doing as part of their job made it so much more exciting and allowed me to learn skills applicable to life beyond school.”
