From Chemistry to the C-Suite

Kurt Kendall shares a glimpse of his career journey in this post. 

It’s been more than 25 years since I graduated from MIT with my doctorate and decided to pursue a career in business rather than continue with chemistry. However, I still recall with utter clarity sitting in a graduate class in quantum mechanics that was taught by Professor Bawendi and learning how to solve Hamiltonian equations; not the easiest of courses despite his great teaching. I also had the privilege that he was one of the three professors who reviewed and signed off on my Ph.D thesis along with Dietmar Seyferth and Hanno zur Loye, who was my thesis advisor. Congratulations to Professor Bawendi, all the graduate students who have worked in his lab over the years, and the MIT Chemistry Department.
