How has being a History graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"My history degree was equally important to my professional success. While many students visualize investment banking as a highly quantitative job that revolves around financial modeling, having excellent presentation, communication, and negotiation skills are just as important, and become even more valuable in more senior roles. Studying history sharpened my ability to develop and convey a position based on principled analysis, supported by quantitative evidence."
