I have enjoyed the Finance program because I have hands-on experience with the Student Managed Investment Fund and have the opportunities to be certified before graduation, such as receiving the Bloomberg certification. These hands-on experiences prepare me well for my internship and also for my full-time job interviews.
My favorite experience has been serving as the President of UTA Finance Society. It has transformed me in many aspects of leadership and has a great support system where I can lean on with questions, support, and growth opportunities. Teamwork makes the dream work, and I am forever grateful for our FINAFAM. Also, Goolsby Leadership Academy has been an integral part of my transfer to UTA. It has given me opportunities to connect with great mentors such as Vicky Teherani, UTA alumni Fred Gartrell, Professor Charles Miller and Dr. Hubbard. I also got a chance to hear and learn from many great professionals share their remarkable journey, which I can apply to my personal development. I encourage incoming students to find the organization that is near and dear to your heart and be engaged. It would be a fantastic opportunity for you to discover your strengths, learn from your peers and build your confidence.
