"As an undergraduate, Lueshen developed relationships with the business faculty. “A wide variety of professors with diverse backgrounds helped me see different perspectives. The business and accounting classes I took gave me the technical skills needed to progress in my accounting positions at Eaton and the on-campus experience as a residential advisor as well as graduate business classes helped me develop leadership skills needed in my current position."
