Why I chose the PhDCEP Program:
I chose the PhDCEP program because I'd like to start a business after graduation. The combination of a focused, driven Ph.D program and a follow-on MBA are a natural fit for this goal.
Work experience and activities:
Undergraduate research (2.5 years during the school year, 1 summer as a UROP and 1 summer at Sigma-Aldrich) and piano performance (played as a soloist and accompanied the university choir). I also worked for 3 years in national defense positions after graduation.
