UW-Parkside provided me the opportunity to expand my education beyond the classroom while working one-on-one with professors. The Business and Economics faculty have the ability to recognize students strengths and assist in developing those strengths into lifelong assets. The skill sets I learned, most importantly critical thinking, while working towards my Business and Economics degrees are used on a daily basis while working in all aspects of the financing division of the Racine County Economic Development Corporation. My education at UW-Parkside has helped me find a position at a local corporation that allows me to continue to develop my skill sets while growing the local economy.
