David Freund | B.Com. '17 | Branch Manager
David recognized business was important to study because it is embedded in every industry and job. His business studies focused on ethical and moral business practices, not just hard skills. He graduated believing that businesses ought to create and provide value to the people they serve. The community at King's was also key for him on every level; it provided a place for him to ask questions, get outside his comfort zone, and gave him life experience for the business world.
