“The GCSP pulled me beyond the base curriculum and classroom experience of college and allowed me to define the scope of challenges I wanted to take on. In my current role I work as a business advisor to help companies grow by working with company owners and leaders to achieve “what matters most” as defined in partnership with them. The GCSP required me to similarly learn how to approach large scale problems and identify the core underlying issues that can drive a desired result. This is a skill set I wouldn’t have been exposed to until after graduation if not for the GCSP.”
