I really loved the infographic below, exploring the qualities that successful vs. unsuccessful people have:
Once again, so much of what we read in our classes rings true to what you see above. Everyone knows someone who exhibits the qualities that an unsuccessful person does. I’m glad I’m learning the tools to embody the successful person.
MSC students were honored to have distinguished guest visitors from Korea: Philos Ko, Chairman of Philos Technologies and Executive Director Megan JS. Ko, PLS Tech Korea, Philos C&S, Philos Sports International.
An award-winning and highly regarded business leader and mentor, Chairman Ko provided his management philosophy in a special lunchtime lecture, highlighting lessons learned as he [...]
So often in my life I have been working towards the next big thing. I become so fixated and bogged down on what’s next and working towards the steps to get there, that I often lose sight of my life in the moment. As much as this mindset has pushed me to pursue so many [...]
Come August 3rd, MSC students will not be receiving degrees from Northwestern University.
We will have earned them.
Although the Program is relatively short, it is not easy. In fact, its speed is one of the most significant challenges as we strive to glean everything we can from our courses while juggling work and family commitments. The [...]
Our Practicum requirement is to attend four out of six Saturday sessions. Even though it is challenging to carve two full days out of my schedule for classes on Practicum weeks, I plan to make them all.
So far, the extra effort has been more than worth it.
When reviewing the practicum topics, I chose to audit [...]
As promised, I am writing to share about my experience with the International Media Seminar at American University of Paris with Northwestern’s EPICS department.

Laurie Boettcher did not disappoint. It wasn’t just the valuable insight she [...]
When asked, “How do you like school?”
I’ll answer, “I LOVE it!”
“You love it? Really? Wow. People don’t usually love school.”
But I do.
And, I am not the only one. I asked my cohort (via Facebook), “What do you love about the MSC Program?” They replied:

By any other name would still smell as sweet,” Romeo & Juliet
In Shakespeare’s famous play, Juliet’s assertion that a name is meaningless does not hold true on the Internet. When it comes to managing your identity online, your name and the information that is linked to it, can make or break [...]
It took much longer to file away my notes and handouts from first quarter than expected. I thought I would be doing this within days of first term’s end. Yet, I found myself creating binders for my old courses just two days before my new classes would begin.
It was hard to let go. I feared [...]
