Influential Impact Makers
I chose Innovation Marketing and Management because it is more than running a business — it is the practice of evaluating and implementing ideas that create new services, products and processes for a business.
– Katy Kuhr
Most great ideas fail, which is why being an innovator means much more than thinking of them. I chose Northwood’s Innovation program so that I could learn these skills, while also gaining the experience I needed through numerous campus activities and competitions.
