Anderson Favorites

Course Brand Management
Moment Leadership Foundation was my favorite moment of grad school. I wish we could have done it one more time before finishing graduate school. It really set the course for how I would show up to grad school everyday. I was able to see that the corporate space is much like sports in the sense that you work on teams. The way I was a good teammate in sports is the same way I'll be a good teammate in the corporate arena.

In Derek's own words

"Much like Los Angeles, Anderson accepts everyone. I felt I could come as myself and be accepted and embraced at Anderson. My experience matched up perfectly with what I envisioned prior to entering Anderson. Even though I didn't look like most of my classmates or work in traditional jobs like my classmates, my classmates made me feel welcomed and loved."
