The Robert Day School of Economics and Finance Career Management

Gregg Ireland '72
"I think it's most important that the Program focuses on producing graduates who are more than just test scores and technical proficiency. While the technical aspects are absolutely essential in my industry, real leadership requires much more - judgment, communication, people skills, and an understand of how organizations behave and develop. By fostering these and other qualities, the Program sets itself apart."
