“My professors in the College of Business were realists. Many of them have operated in the private sector outside of teaching. There’s a real difference between the theory of something and the act of doing it. Grit and emotional durability were prerequisites.” Jordan Thayer graduated in 2009 and often comes back to campus to gives lectures and networking opportunities for students. Thayer is a Portfolio Manager and Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley.
