Moment Academically, my favorite moment at Anderson would have to be competing in the Amazon Case Competition and Google Case Competition. It really gave me the opportunity to bond closely with my classmates and it was cool to make it to the semi-final rounds. Although we didn't win, we felt it was a huge accomplishment to beat out 50 + teams and beyond that, it gave us the opportunity to bond as we struggled to complete the assignment in an aggressive timeframe.

In David's own words

"Anderson made the most sense for me career wise. I wanted to stay on the West Coast and I wanted to work at a company like Mattel or Disney. My dream was to work in toys to help shape the future of play with comic book IP. Anderson sent a lot of people into those companies each year and being a career switcher, it made logical sense. Also, Anderson is one of the few schools that gives their part-time MBAs and full-time MBAs the same opportunities. At other schools I looked into, part-time MBAs weren't allowed to recruit and it was important for me to have that option."
