In the podcast, Durkin talks about what led her to L’Oréal, the thrill of having a hand in product development and the rotational program that has given her a deep understanding of a company that combines manufacturing, operations and marketing.

"The more you rotate, the more interactions you have, the more you see," she said. "It’s given me a lot of opportunities. It’s really an awesome experience."

Rutgers Business School has introduced innovative programs to prepare students for careers in the fashion industry, including a Master of Science in Business of Fashion and an undergraduate minor designed to bridge the gap between creativity and business acumen.
