Julien Manyong, a Touro Graduate School of Business alum, grew up in both Nigeria and Togo surrounded by people who made a difference in the world. Today, Manyong shares that commitment through his work with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), part of the World Bank Group, whose mission is to end extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity. A rising star at the IFC, Manyong’s experience at Touro’s Graduate School of Business prepared him well for his career. From classes on international business and law that strengthened his understanding of how to work effectively in different cultures, to learning how to value companies under different accounting codes, as well as how to present information efficiently, the Touro program provided important skills needed in his day-to-day role. Above all, completing the two-year degree program while working full-time steeled him for the rigors of his current, fast-paced work environment. "If you find the opportunity to make a difference, you have the responsibility to seize it,” says Manyong.

Alum spotlight! After teaching in early intervention classrooms, Touro Graduate School of Education alum Chris Lake (class of '13) realized his true calling—starting a nonprofit to advocate for enhanced services for children with special needs. Lake's nonprofit, Community for a Cause, provides children with special needs a voice to improve their quality of life and ensure they are equipped with the essential skills needed to live independently and progress in their lives. "GSE has shaped my career by teaching me key techniques needed to complete my due diligence when it comes to research. Without this skill, I wouldn’t have been able to play a part in making legislative progress as I first needed to gain greater insight on the issues at hand and what regulations were already in place," said Lake.
Student spotlight! Although only in his second year of studies on his path to becoming a physical therapist, School of Health Sciences (SHS) student Scott Rush dreams of working with patients of all ages in an outpatient setting in a New York City hospital. After working as a personal trainer for five years, a role he loved, Rush made the decision to enroll at Touro to pursue his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. “My passion comes from my desire to grow and be better than the person I was a year ago, personally and professionally. After graduating with my bachelor’s degree, I decided to work fulltime as a personal trainer. I think it was the best decision that I could’ve made because it really clarified that this was not what I wanted to do long term as my career. I’m someone who values stability and the life of a trainer can be very unstable. One tip I can give to someone who is contemplating applying for physical therapy school is to complete all basic sciences prerequisites as soon as possible," Rush said.
Congrats to Talia Wall, Touro College of Pharmacy's 2021-22 Academic Fellow! In the coming year, Wall will teach in the classroom as well as precept students on rotation. She will also help design courses and assess student progress. She’ll get more clinical practice through rotations, and participate in a research project and present the results at a major national conference. At the end, she will receive two certificates – in teaching and in leadership.
