Senior considers graduate school abroad

Simpson students find their success all over the world.  One student, senior management and IMC major Lance Kramer is hoping to find the next step in his success story in across the Atlantic in England.

Lance has been a very involved student at Simpson; he worked at Holy Grounds coffee shop on campus, he interned at Community! Youth Concepts, Everybody Wins! Iowa and Parents Anonymous. He is also involved on campus in his fraternity, in AmeriCorps, Religious Life Community and Student Support Services.  Through the senior Strategic Management Seminar course, Lance is also participating in the Emerge@Simpson business incubator.  Rather than choosing an existing project already a part of the incubator, Lance and his team have set a goal to create a non-profit organization focused on agricultural education in the Caribbean.

He is hoping to leverage those experiences in graduate school, but he is not looking down the street, or in the next state.  No, Lance is turning to schools in England.  Lance had a great time studying abroad during his undergrad years, so he is applying to business schools in the London area for graduate school.

“I hope to expand my knowledge through an international experience in seeking a variety of new skills to apply toward my goal of becoming an executive director of a nonprofit organization.”

Lance has been accepted to three of his choice schools and is waiting to hear from the last one before making his decision.  Lance will start his graduate education in England in the fall and we look forward to seeing the good work he brings to the world in the coming years!
