Joe BatemanClass of 2010

Investment Associate for Luminate in Washington, DC

Croft prepared me to understand that today's complex problems, whether in the United States or abroad, must be addressed through a multi and inter-disciplinary approach. It is necessary to have a fundamental understanding of the political, social, and economic dynamics at play when trying to come up with policy solutions or develop a strategic business plan. Croft equips its students with the competitive advantage of being comfortable with grey areas where there is no clear right answer, but also equips them with the necessary tools to ask the right questions and find the best possible solution. Croft prepared me to work with local NGOs, governments, multilateral institutions, and businesses in the United States and in Latin America through highly relevant coursework, language immersion, and faculty that were willing to challenge me and point me in the right direction.
