“I am still in contact with professors from the BARM program, today. Professors would go above and beyond for students to ensure we were set up for success by providing us with insights on what courses and electives would be a good fit based on what we wanted to do, and recommend books and podcasts to help us keep up with the industry we were most interested in.”
