A lifelong learning mindset tends to lead to professional opportunities, positive experiences, and career success. Approaching one’s life and work with curiosity enables forward and strategic thinking that leads to understanding business needs. Building on a strong educational foundation in the sciences, math, business, and digital technologies, lifelong learning underscores the business value that can be realized as technologies change and emerge. This talk will be of special interest to students and professionals who have a passion for pressing the envelope of change.
