After Duke, I've been working in consulting and marketing strategy. Despite not going into medicine nor research, being a Neuroscience graduate has still had a profound impact on my career. Having a scientific background helps shape the way I think through business challenges and present recommendations. The degree also makes me confident in my quantitative skills, which is critical in today's business world.
I remember being intimidated by some of the Neuroscience requirements that were more focused on the science skillset such as Chemistry or Physics. I wanted to spend all my time on behavior and psychology electives. However, the science courses arguably had a larger impact on me in the long-term. They taught me how to learn quickly and to be comfortable with data. They're tough, but worth it!
