"The combination of the two degrees in today and tomorrow's economic environment will become increasingly competitive as more people pursue additional education. By pursuing multiple degrees, I believe I set myself up for success further down the road by investing the time to do so now."

Daniel Elliott chose MSU Law for its scholarship opportunities, dual degree option with the business school, and the high-quality of its faculty. “The school's faculty are forward-thinking about what will make a great 21st century attorney. The law school works hard to distinguish itself from the vast majority of schools that are teach the same way they did a century ago,” he said.

 Daniel is pursuing a joint JD/MBA. “The combination of the two degrees in today and tomorrow's economic environment will become increasingly competitive as more people pursue additional education,” he said. “By pursuing multiple degrees, I believe I set myself up for success further down the road by investing the time to do so now.”

 To further prepare for success, Daniel utilizes the resources at Office of Career Services. “The office helped me find the opportunity to have an international internship in Australia. Without the hard work of these folks and their ability to bring about new and exciting opportunities for students to work, I wouldn't have the kinds of opportunities that are now present,” he said.

 He has also received guidance from his professors. “Professor Walther has been incredible in discussing future career plans, and shaping my education to better in tune with what I want my future to become. Not only by suggesting courses, but also by showing potential push back I will get when actually working in the real world,” Daniel said.

 If Daniel could give one piece of advice to future students, he recommends that they open up and become involved at the law school. “Don't overextend yourself, but look for opportunities that can help you grow and understand yourself as a person,” he said.
