Alumni Success Stories

Mary Klutts quote

Mary J. Klutts

MAIS, Chief Financial Officer for the Library of Congress

"You have to know how to deal with a lot of different people in my job at the Library of Congress. It helped that I was able to include studies in subjects such as psychology and history in addition to business and finance. That kind of diverse knowledge is essential in the day-to-day work that I do."
