After graduating from UT this December, I would like to pursue a career in logistics within the realm of social enterprises and nonprofits. What I have learned through my work experience is that using market forces to make a profit and solving social issues do not have to be mutually exclusive. My mission in life is to pursue a career that merges the two.
Best thing about McCombs:
One of the things I love most about McCombs is the emphasis on preparation for life after college. Our Career Services Team prepares students for their internships and helps us secure full-time offers with top companies before we graduate. And you can customize your degree to your heart’s desire: optional minors and interdisciplinary certificate programs let you adapt your degree to pursue your passion and stay competitive in today’s dynamic business world.
Favorite thing to do at UT:
What I love about UT is that it is an open campus. This allows for fun events like Frisbee golf tournaments, the Longhorn Run, and even Holi, the cultural Indian festival, to be held throughout the Forty Acres. It is truly a place where you can not only excel in academics but enjoy and explore life outside of school.
Cool things I've done during my time at UT:
I trained for 18 months to ride my bike from Austin to Anchorage, AK last summer with the Texas 4000 for Cancer team.
- Took a semester abroad to study business at the University of Thammasat in Bangkok, Thailand.
- Worked as a summer intern for PepsiCo’s Food for Good Social Enterprise program in Dallas, TX this past summer.
