Mehdi Taifi, Rollins Master of Liberal Studies graduate and Senior Manager at Robinhood.

"My time in the MLS program trained me to be resilient in the changing tides of the business world. Philosophy? Religion? You think, ‘How do those classes help in business?’ It isn’t just the content. The way the classes were taught helped me understand the world better. I wouldn't be where I am without that.”
