Making It Big in 30 Minutes

A podcast for, by, and about the Emerson community and the many ways its alumni are making the world a little better, every day.

What does it mean to make it big? Having money, fame, world wide acclaim, climbing the corporate ladder or crushing it in your business. One thing’s for sure, there isn’t just one way to do it.

In each episode, you will meet an Emersonian who’s Making It. Making a living, making a difference and sometimes, making it up as they go along. As far as we’re concerned, if you’re making something, you’ve made it … big time.

Brought to you by the Emerson College Alumni Association:
