Student Spotlight: Erin Milcarek

Tell us about yourself.
My name is Erin Milcarek. I received my BS in PreK-4 Education from Duquesne University in May 2020. After a brief stint in the school of business, I transferred into education but continued to take some business courses as I progressed. Soon after graduating, I decided that business aligned more closely with my interests and that I should pursue this route in depth. I am excited about the opportunity to explore the world of sustainability and how its relevance plays a major part in business today.
