“Being a business major has opened many doors for me. I majored in business management and focused on human resources because I wanted to help make a difference in the world. Over the course of my four years at Kent State, and with the help of my professors, I was able to work on a research project which developed into a business idea. I was also involved in the Business Professionals’ Roundtable organization (BPR) and was able to express my thoughts and suggestions. I always wanted to help people and I felt the way I could do that was through business.” - Michaela Judy, Business Management
