"Learning inside and outside the classroom has helped me gain the confidence I need to be successful in business. Our special Cardinal Business Edge classes are also great. I am a discussion-based learner, so when our professors give us a chance to share our own ideas or perspective on a topic, it allows me to improve relating to other people. Forming relationships with different types of people players a major role in business, so practicing these skills so early in my college career is truly a 'business edge.'"
