  • I work as Director of Program Management at Sabre. The analytical and critical thinking skills I acquired from my Dartmouth degree have been invaluable to me as I sort through and make decisions on information that is sometimes not complete. (10/2014)

  • After Dartmouth, I went on to Brandeis University to get my MA in International Economics and Finance. From there, my first two jobs were working as an economist, first at DRI/McGraw-Hill in Lexington, MA (now IHS Global Insight) doing econometric forecasting, and then at Toyota Motor Corporate Services in New York, NY where I was a research economist. I have now been at my current employer, FactSet Research Systems in Norwalk, CT, for just over 15 years. For my first 11 years here, I was...

  • I am currently Director of Instruction at the Virtual Learning Academy Charter School in NH. This position is similar to being a principal in a brick and mortar school, which I was previous to taking this position. This position allows me to work with schools around the state to help them figure out how to use online education to expand students opportunities for learning. The MSS program taught me how to think out of the box, which serves me well in this position. We are offering a...

  • I picked MSS because I liked to see how math could be applied to social science questions. After Dartmouth, I went on to a 20+ year career in managing human services. I always had more than a passing interest in the data. When I was director of a homeless shelter, I wondered, is it a better outcome if the people who are homeless leave for housing within a month or is it better if they stay 3 months but the return to the shelter rate is lower?  In 2005, I was self-employed grant writing and...

  • I graduated from Dartmouth Medical School in 1984. I still use skills I learned while an MSS major. The practice of medicine has become very data driven. As a result of my MSS training, I am better able to understand the data I often have to review to improve the practice of medicine. (10/2014)

  • I have had a chance to combine my math and SS skills into a full career. I have taken the process skills from math and combined them with the people skills of SS. Today I am the managing director of the largest professional facilitation and facilitation training company in the US. We lead executives and teams through a variety of processes, including strategic planning, team building, issue resolution, process improvement, etc. It's a fantastic combination of the hard and soft skills of MSS...
