Recent grads have earned degrees from Vanderbilt, Cornell, Purdue and Colorado State University. They work all around the world as teachers, actuaries and in computer and healthcare technology. One of our grads is a decision science consultant using her mathematics degree to analyze historical data at Walt Disney World. Two recent grads are teaching in Taiwan and another is working for a healthcare software company.
If graduate school is on the horizon, many of our alums have paved the way. A 2012 graduate is attending grad school at Arizona State while another is pursuing statistics at South Dakota State University.
Grant Weller '08
Visiting Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University
Math and Economics Major
As a statistician, I often have the privilege of working with researchers in a variety of subject areas, including business, atmospheric science, sociology, and astrophysics. Each of these fields has its own set of methodologies and terminology. Being able to understand the core concepts of collaborators' fields, as well as to effectively communicate those of my own in simple language, is a crucial skill for my career success. I believe that the liberal arts education of Concordia helped develop this skill by exposing me to subjects which I might not otherwise have learned about.
Levi DeVries '09
Pursuing Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering, University of Maryland
Physics & Mathematics Major
Concordia fosters an environment that develops a good work ethic and stresses attention to detail. Though challenging, the classwork in physics and mathematics gave me a solid foundation for my research in aerospace engineering. Concordia faculty are encouraging and inspiring, and they go above and beyond to ensure students’ success.
