"I decided to design my own major because it allowed me to study exactly what I wanted, even though Brandeis didn’t offer the major, while still being able to take advantage of the fantastic liberal arts education that Brandeis does offer. Becoming an IIM definitely requires discipline and hard work, but it was totally worth it! I would recommend this opportunity to anyone."
