Before Duquesne: Steve joins our cohort from Bloomfield, New Jersey. For the past three years, Steve was a field technician for an environmental laboratory. His responsibilities consisted mostly of sampling, collecting and testing water samples. Steve was promoted to assistant manager of his office where he was exposed to the management aspects in a scientific field. Steve attended Ramapo-College of New Jersey where he focused on environmental studies.
Why Duquesne: “I chose this program in that incorporated all three aspects of the triple bottom line. My Alma mater had a sustainability program, but I chose Duquesne’s program due to its world-class faculty and international ranking. The accelerated format was a factor in that I can focus on my education without the distraction of having a full-time job and quickly reenter the workforce when the program ends.”
Beyond Duquesne: After this program Steve plans to find a position that involves sustainability that influences businesses to be more sustainable and more proactive in regards to the environment than just pollution control.
