“Embrace was undoubtedly the most valuable program I participated in during my time at UE, for reasons that go far beyond the practical experience I gained in marketing and communications. By delivering professional services and navigating complex relationships with a diverse range of clients, I not only developed technical proficiency required for agency work, I also made immensely valuable discoveries about myself, my interpersonal values, and my professional goals in real time. The Embrace experience - including the rich network of peers and mentors I gained - equipped me to embark on my post-college journey with a sense of confidence and purpose that just can't be taught with a textbook.” Emily Schuster - Class of 2020
