Why I Give...

"After an incredible one-year experience in the MMS program, I feel more connected to Fuqua and Duke than to my undergraduate institution. In the four cities and two countries I've lived in since graduation, I've stayed engaged both as a volunteer and supporter of the school. I'm proud to be a member of Team Fuqua and of the Keller Society."

Peter Smith MMS ‘11

Building Career Resilience

Career paths are no longer linear, and most everyone can expect their careers to be impacted by the constant changes in the modern workplace due to technology, innovation, globalization, and shifts in policy.  While it's possible to predict some of those changes, more often than not difficult times can come when we least expect them. Take a look at what some Washington, DC-area alumni learned about proactive career management and career resilience from some of their peers, and how you can successfully manage your career and the unexpected.
