Business Executives for National Security 

"I tracked and analyzed developments in....critical mineral supply/demand challenges, 5G cybersecurity threats, efforts to recruit and retain a national security workforce, and transformative organizational changes to address great power competition. I also helped prepare background memos, correspondence, and action plans for BENS members and government partners....Being able to live and learn in Washington DC made my classes and internship experience so much more meaningful and relevant. I was able to research developments at the Department of Defense, knowing that it was only a few metro stops away, and watch Congressional hearings that were happening across the street. The environment gives you the ability to directly apply your work -- inside and outside the classroom -- to the real world."
