Big ideas, practical applications, and a few gentle nudges

Beloit’s student-centric culture, broad liberal arts focus, and strategic nudges from mentors helped Karla Magana Figueroa’13 get the most out of her Beloit education. While everyone may not immediately connect a liberal arts education with a career in corporate America, she’s found it to be a perfect fit for the wide-ranging projects she’s worked on as a consultant, first for IBM, then for Ernst & Young.
