Augsburg – Finale

Although the semester’s plans were drastically different from what everyone expected, I still had one of the best classroom experiences in this semester’s Projects in Marketing class. The semester has been engaging and challenging, with a ton of new insights into the world of consulting. Meade throughout has been helpful and supportive, especially when we…

The Silver Lining to this Journey

The Global Consulting Capstone: Projects in Marketing course with Professor Meade was one of my favorite classes that I have taken in all my years at Pitt.
