Rebel has a lot of advice for current School of Business students and recent graduates saying, “Look for good mentors in your professional life and look for opportunities to mentor others. Take an interest and care about people. Treat people with care and respect. Character matters–honesty, accountability, and ethical behavior. Be a critical and independent thinker; don’t believe everything you hear or read. Challenge the status quo. Ask good questions.”
