Alumni Perspectives

They're really teaching you the skills you need to be a leader in your field and to understand decisions that other leaders are making.

Virginia Foster, Alum

I was looking to move my career from a mid-level government employee to an executive position. After graduating in 2012, a year and a half later I am now the executive director of a non-profit.

Kate Fritz, Alum

I think anybody can benefit from XMNR; it’s all a matter of knowing what you want to get out of it, and that takes some self-reflection.

Darin Liston, Alum 

The XMNR program provided an outstanding foundation for my next professional chapter, upon my return to Korea. I’m now honored to work for EcoLead, a comprehensive green consulting firm, as the head of the LEED certification department and as a general manager. The XMNR program provided me with interdisciplinary knowledge and professional skills that I continue to apply each day.

Soyoung Lee, Alum 

The XMNR degree has helped me to build an international work portfolio and is also helpful as I assist in urban renewal programs in my hometown of Detroit. Challenges of sustainability are truly relevant wherever we find ourselves.
