“My education at IC helped lay the foundation for what I have been able to achieve professionally by providing me with a diverse liberal arts education. The well-rounded coursework allowed me to figure out the profession I wanted to pursue. Now, as a project manager in a small company, I am required to perform and manage a variety of functions. I believe IC provided me with the critical thinking and problem solving skills required to perform these functions well.”
