During the 2010 Orientation Week, Carolyn Maezes T'10 asked Welling to compare his current activities with those in the for-profit financial sector. He responded, "... the management skill set.. and the strategic discerning are very similar..the dynamics are similar enough so that the things that make sense in the for-profit sector generally make sense in the non-profit sector.... There’s good transferability, you just have to ......understand the difference between a market discipline and a mission discipline and how that effects the way the company works."
