Sharrod Robertson“Do your research: Whatever you want to do, find out about your competitors, and the positives and negatives about your industry. Find people who can help you make it happen. If you believe in what you want, don’t give up.”

While studying business at MC, Sharrod Robertson got his first job in a bank through a campus employment services office. He transferred to Howard University to complete a finance degree, then worked in the corporate accounting department at Marriott International. Later, he owned a Subway franchise in Rockville, Md. As manager, Robertson worked from 9 a.m. to midnight for two years, until he and his partners sold the business for a 50 percent profit. Currently, Robertson is a real estate broker serving Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. “I always wanted my own business but wanted to learn in corporate America first before I ventured out on my own.”
