||I graduated in January, 2010.
For the last two blocks of my undergraduate career I went to Europe to intern with a soil technology company. During my time with the company I found myself learning less about soil science and more about business and what I did and did not like. The internship transitioned into a job but soon after the project I was working on ran out of funding so I went looking for the next adventure. I spent the next year traveling and working on internet marketing projects with a few other MUM graduates. I currently work full time on our internet marketing company Galaxy Ninja.
I feel that my sustainable living degree helped prepared me to start my own business because through out my education I saw seemingly impossible projects manifest from nothing with creativity and elbow grease.
My sustainable living degree made me acutely aware of efficiency, resources and systems. I have been delighted to discover these concepts have been equally helpful when translated into a business setting. I frequently find myself turning to permaculture as a guide to navigate business decisions.
I also feel that my sustainable living degree helped develop a set of ethics that I consider the foundation for everything I do.
