For me, Northwestern is a special place, and the community is constantly thriving. Each school and department is so busy! There is constant activity regardless of the season, whether it’s summer sessions, conferences, the Cherub programs or inviting speakers and hosting executive educational workshops to be on campus.”

After more than a decade at Northwestern, Donna Wang Su knows what sets Northwestern apart as an employer: its benefits. None have shaped Su's professional life more than the tuition discount, which Su used to complete multiple certificates and a master's degree. “Within my first year, I earned a Business Administration Leadership certificate from Northwestern, which further lead to me completing my Master of Arts in Public Policy and Administration and finishing up my certificate in Higher Education and Policy,” says Su. 

She has applied this training to her current role as Associate Director of Operations/Program Manager at the Farley Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation.  In this role, she oversees the center’s operations as it offers classes in various entrepreneurship areas to students all over Northwestern University. Farley’s courses are open to both undergraduate and graduate students alike.  In the 2018-2019 year, Farley offered 34 courses that served 800+ NU undergraduate and graduate students alongside hosting 80+ events annually.  “I oversee the center with its dedication to teaching students from different backgrounds about entrepreneurial efforts taught by professionals, which means ensuring that the Farley faculty are properly supported with their coursework and classroom needs.  My team also provides advising and support to NU students that enroll in our undergraduate and graduate minor program, as well. I handle the financial logistics and strategic planning which ensures that the Farley Center runs as smoothly as possible.“
