I studied Management Science and Engineering with a concentration in Organizations, Technology, and Policy.
It’s a mouthful - but it really means that I got to take core engineering classes and supplement them with the humanities. I learned how to code, lead diverse teams, optimize supply chains, analyze statistical data, give speeches, use design thinking strategies, write effectively, think critically about current events, and more. I was advised by Professor Tom Byers, a leader in entrepreneurial education. Plus, I got to study abroad and study art history in Florence, Italy.
A Sampler of My Favorite Classes
- CS 106B: Programming Abstractions (C++) - the first time i really had fun coding. concepts like recursion stretched my brain in ways i hadn’t felt in awhile.
- CME 103: Introduction to Matrix Methods - this linear algebra class laid the foundation for so much optimization and CS coursework!
- MS&E 140: Accounting for Managers and Entrepreneurs - not the most inspiring content, but was essential for all my VC pursuits.
- ECON 50: Economic Analysis - one of the courses at stanford that really pushed me to study harder and stretch my understanding of economics. plus, makler is an awesome prof.
- PWR 1: The Rhetoric of What and How We Eat - made me a better writer, and am ever so grateful for professor kantor’s mentorship. my final piece: Employee Opinions on WFH
- MS&E 193: Technology and National Security: Past, Present, and Future - caused me to think critically about how the US funds defense tech and the impact of war (we literally ran estimations on how many people would die per weapon…oy vey)
- THINK 65: Preventing Human Extinction - morbid, but caused me to delve deeper into climate change
- MS&E 180: Organizational Theory - a class w/ lots of cold-calling and my favorite topic (how do people work and collaborate really well together? from individual —> teams —> orgs)
