Learning to serve others and becoming a better leader.

As he prepares to enter the business world, Brian sees the value of being in a good location and making strong connections. “I chose Concordia University Chicago because of the sense of community here and the endless opportunities that CUC offers. With the University's Chicago-area location and the connections our professors have, there are so many opportunities for internships, meeting new people and networking,” he says.

And while networking and opportunities are essential to finding a job, Brian knows that the principles instilled in him at CUC will help him succeed over his career. “One of the things I really value is the University's mission to equip men and women to be servant leaders. I think in order to be a great leader and truly lead someone, you must first know what it feels like to serve someone,” he says. “Here at CUC I have the opportunity to do both of those things.”
