What RCOB Means to Me

by Miringu Kiarie

What RCOB Means to MeThe Richards College of Business prepared me for two of the most enriching experiences of my life, a journey to Mumbai for the 23rd International Economic Research Convention, followed by an internship at the World Affairs Council of Atlanta. I never would have sought these opportunities out or believed I could attain them if I had not been exposed to the relentless enthusiasm that echoes out of the character of every professor I’ve gotten to know at the Richards College of Business.

It is an enthusiasm that invests in the intrinsic worth of young minds, a passion that upholds the value of globally engaged and service oriented citizens. Their level of expectation is what inspired me to reach further into myself and broaden the horizons of my personal, academic, and professional education. Still, they didn’t stop there. My professors went out of their way to ensure that every step I took towards the achievement of my goals was a culturing of experience, a refinement of ability, and a progression of maturity. The Richards College of Business enabled me to see the world in a new way, to view my value and the possibilities of my contribution in a bright new light.
