Stephen Boyd

Legislative Assistant - Office of Senator James Lankford

Stephen Boyd Headshot

"In my final semester in the DBU MBA program, I received an opportunity to work in the United States Senate. I am now a Legislative Assistant covering the national security, foreign affairs, and international trade portfolio for Senator James Lankford (OK).

Although public policy was not my plan when I started my MBA, DBU prepared me well for this assignment not only by providing me with the necessary tools and expertise to critically analyze trade data and financial information but also with the character formation and leadership skills to stand out as a light for Christ. All careers are an opportunity to serve people. Whether you work for a major corporation, local non-profit, or the United States Senate, our task as Christian servant-leaders is to leverage our influence and skills to help others thrive and flourish. Make the most of every opportunity while you’re still a student. Use your status as an MBA student to request meetings or informational interviews with business and civic leaders whom you admire. Get out of your comfort zone and grab coffee with every professor and as many classmates as you can. You never know what you will learn from them or how you might help each other in the future! Life is all about relationships – lean into them to experience it fully."
