Exor Torres, MSB '19, has accepted a position as a Business Development Representative at RiskLens. Below, Exor shares his experiences in the program, and how it helped him to find his future:
Why I Joined the Program
"After graduating from a liberal arts university with a science degree, I decided that business was the path I wanted to pursue. I had no prior knowledge of business so I wanted to join a program that not only would build my foundation of skills, but also provide me with real life business experience."
How the Program Helped Me Find My Career Path
"The program does a great job introducing to you all the different areas of business, from finance to sales to marketing and accounting. The professors who engage with us have exceptional experience and professional success. Not only are they providing you with practical skills, but also the tools to analyze a problem and create a solution."
My Highlights of the Program
"There were many highlights of the program for me. The three which stand out most include the company visits that we take each week to gain a better understanding of how business is conducted in various industries. The second highlight is the networking events put on by the program. These helped us to connect with other professionals from different companies along with personal development. Lastly is the capstone project, which gave us a chance to apply all of the skills and tools we acquired over the year to a real world consulting engagement."
