In their words

“Hands down, access to the Erb community–current students, alumni, staff and faculty–has been the greatest benefit of becoming an Erber. There are Erb-affiliated folks working in almost any imaginable role and industry, and they’re all more than willing to assist you in planning your next steps.”

Erin Seguin, MBA/MS 2022
