Before Duquesne: Kyle joined the cohort after spending time living in Rome, Italy where he had the opportunity to work for Duquesne’s Italian Campus study abroad program. Before his relocation to Italy, Kyle was a Drug and Alcohol therapist at UPMC Western Psychiatric hospital. For his undergraduate degree he attended Duquesne University and received his bachelor’s in psychology.
Why Duquesne: “As an ardent environmentalist and also as someone who always has been interested in business, an MBA in Sustainability seemed like a great idea!” The one-year length of the program was also appealing. The fact that most of Kyle’s family lived in Pittsburgh was another incentive for him to stay in the area and go to graduate school.
Beyond Duquesne: Currently, Kyle has a variety of different interests for the short-term. “Reorganizing my social life” for one, he laughs. “But I’m excited to begin a career in sustainability. I’m also looking forward to having more free time so I can get back into the guitar and do some more traveling. In the long-run though I suppose I’m also looking to start my own business.” Whatever Kyle plans to do after Duquesne it’s going to involve biking to where he needs to go: “I think one of the coolest things would be to have a life where I get to bike to work.”
