Learn to do. Do to learn.

No matter which degree you pursue, you'll be challenged to open yourself to the world and learn from firsthand experience. Whether it's conducting research with professors, investing $20 million of the University's endowment or bringing sustainable technologies to developing countries, you'll be encouraged to leave the classroom and enter the world's workshop. Because when you learn by doing, you'll be amazed by what you can do.
