Perhaps the most crucial aspect of the art and science of marketing that every marketer should incorporate is the art of showing appreciation for those who invest in them along their journey. I am not yet a marketing leader, but I’m on my way to becoming one. I want to take an opportunity to thank my professors, Dr. Anthony Miyazaki, Dr. Wendy Guess, and Debra Cabrera, for laying the foundation for the Master of Science in Marketing program at FIU. I have learned so much in a short amount of time and I couldn’t be more excited about the future. Thank you for everything you do for the students at FIU and thank you for your investment in me.
