How FPS has helped shape career success: As an FPS alum, I can’t imagine where I would be today without participating in the program for six years. Future Problem Solving not only taught me to solve challenges and think critically, but it also cultivated my ability to creatively collaborate with a team and greatly improve my time management skills. I can absolutely say that FPS is the reason that I have found success in my budding career in marketing communications. FPS gave me the tools so I can think quickly on my feet and adapt to new challenges.
