Five College of Business students were trailblazers in the inaugural University of Texas/Texas A&M Investment Management Company (UTIMCO) scholars program this summer.

The students—Thao Ta, Tanmay Bhatia, Bianca Perez, Isaias Curiel, and Jason Sahapatanavana—were selected for their curiosity, perseverance, and strong work ethic. Ta is an accounting student; the others are finance students. The UT Arlington contingent was part of a statewide group that included 41 juniors from 10 UT System campuses.

UTIMCO is an investment management corporation whose sole purpose is the management of investment assets under the fiduciary care of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System and Texas A&M System Board. The scholars participated in weekly interactive virtual sessions related to their personal and professional development that provided participants with insight and advice to advance their future investment management careers.

Bhatia says professional managers and leaders shared their expertise throughout the program and helped participants improve their resumes and build a network.

“The program gave us practical advice, like how to project better during interviews,” Sahapatanavana adds. “It showed us what working in the professional world was really like.”
