That's really what being an entrepreneur is all about, and through the truly outstanding instruction I've received, I feel like that's a skill that I've really sharpened. Additionally, the program makes it a point to bring in very impressive speakers throughout the year-professionals at the highest levels across the spectrum of business and industry.

"I entered Lubin as a Finance major, but after having a glimpse of the business world in New York and sensing the urge to know how things work at the back end of a venture, I added a second major, Entrepreneurship. Pace faculty helped me a lot in this process: I received guidance while participating in the Merrill-Baruch Business Plan competition where we won third prize, then I had a chance to share a table with Gurbaksh Chahal as a part of the Entrepreneur-in-Residence Program, and finally, faculty helped me meet business luminaries including Pace trustees and Donald Trump at the 47th Annual Management Leadership Dinner. The Dean recommended me for a prestigious project that led to my first job as a financial analyst. At every turn, Lubin faculty, trustees, and speakers provided the necessary introductions that helped me make the right decisions."
