Ms. MBA For Social Impact
In college I taught two fourth graders from different sides of town: one how to code robots and one how to read. The puzzle led me to a low-income classroom after undergrad. By and large, incentives are mixed up, and I think taking business thinking to the public and non-profit space can help us serve more people better and more quickly.
