Sasha Stefanovic, Online MSHRM ’22, is already known to Boilermaker faithful as a former standout on the Purdue men’s basketball team. He also made a name for himself in the classroom, earning both a bachelor’s degree in finance and his master’s in HR from the Daniels School of Business. His strong work ethic never wavered.

“My parents emigrated from Serbia and Macedonia and worked in steel mills, so that blue-collar ethic was instilled in me early in life,” Stefanovic says. “I think Purdue reflects the same values and characteristics. We’ve had a lot of group projects as part of my master’s program, and everyone is hardworking and focused on doing their best.”
