"Upon leaving college, my mind will be filled with formulas on how to compute and calculate, accompanied by principles on how to lead and manage. However, the most important thing I will leave with is the understanding of why those principles and formulas are so powerful. Knowledge can be gained through reading text, but wisdom only follows understanding. MCB has encouraged me to seek both."
