Kevin Blanco '95VP of Global Application & Chief Reliability Officer at McGraw-Hill
Valuable Internship Experiences
"During my Stonehill years, my advisor, Dr. Craig Higgins, always inspired me to do my best. A junior with a Healthcare Administration major and a Business Administration minor, I was struggling to decide on what profession to choose.
Dr. Higgins pushed me towards doing multiple internships at two Boston area management consulting firms. These experiences provided me with a diverse experience and taught me the value of solving day-to-day business issues with technology.
I use the skills I learned in these internships-- as well as my entire Stonehill career -- everyday in a fast-paced Wall Street business environment. The experiences and relationships I gained from Stonehill have been tremendously valuable in developing both my personal and professional goals."
