Vishal ’s Path

Vishal switched to the PPE program after studying in the business school for almost three years in order to engage in a more interdisciplinary academic experience at Northeastern. He finds that the dimensions added by the PPE courses offer a more critical lens of economic and capitalist systems and paint a fuller picture of society. Vishal hopes a degree in PPE can eventually prepare him for a career in urban planning with the importance of inclusive forms of development in cities.
