I knew Medaille's business program would give me the proper framework for whatever I decided I might like to do with my life, because it covers all aspects of business. This allowed me to grow as a person and helped direct me toward finance.

We help companies like Pepsi, New Era Cap and Walmart to ship smarter and cut costs in the ever-challenging supply chain world. I would have never got to where I am today without the relationships I built at Medaille.
