Hannah Bonitz (MIS '19)
“One of my favorite experiences at UConn was Jon Moore’s case competition class. We had to do a 20-minute presentation every week on a business problem. Initially I wondered why I’d taken the class. But I’ve seen my presentation skills improve so much. It taught me so much about how to present, how to work under pressure, and to accept that a solution may not be perfect but it is the best it can be in the time allotted.”
