By Dawn Zier ’ 86, CEO of Nutrisystem (NASDAQ:NTRI), Spirit Airlines Board Member My education at Stony Brook has been one of the most profound things that has happened to me – it taught me how to think critically.  I was trained as an engineer and in computer science and learned how to take complex problems and break them down into modules and then build up solutions. This has helped me in every job that I have had since. Ask engineers what they do and they’ll likely tell you they solve problems. That’s true whether they’re trying to shrink the…

By Frank A. Loglisci ’07 Many students graduate college with a dream of being successful in their field, and while the definition of what it is to be a success is different for each person, my advice is always the same. It’s a given that you need to be smart, driven and work hard, but one of the hardest and most important things you need to be able to do is communicate. I don’t mean being able to write or speak in a professional manner (though both are important, of course). I’m talking about being able to speak to your…
