Charlie Adkins

Business Honors, MPA

Class of 2016

 

 

Growing up, Charlie envisioned himself being a professional athlete, but due to injuries had to shift his goal to working on the business side of sports. When he came to UT, he realized that goal was attainable through hard work and a solid business education. Sports management is a competitive industry, but the internships he has been able to secure, should prepare him well and give him a head start on his job search. Charlie has been able to intern with UT Athletics, the Round Rock Express and the NFL. Being in BHP has also prepared him well, and he credits his classmates and professors with pushing him to be the best he could be, saying he wouldn’t have been able to do what he has done without them and that he has learned so much from them. He has remained involved on campus through the Undergraduate Business Council, Student Government and Texas Cowboys. He is also an avid Longhorn fan, attending every possible UT sporting event, whether it is in Austin or requires a long road trip. Charlie will graduate this year from BHP, but he will complete one more year in the MPA program.

Kyle may originally be from College Station, home to UT rival Texas A&M, but he found his way to Austin and UT and is now one of the biggest proponents for the university and the program. He is an Admissions Ambassador for UT, spending his summers giving campus tours and helping prospective students learn more about UT and the application process. Growing up in College Station, Kyle said nobody talked about UT and he had no idea what BHP was. It was a university visit and talk with a BHP Recruiter about the program which helped him to learn more and ultimately made him fall in love with the school and program. Kyle has appreciated the diversity UT has to offer and has been able to experience this through his involvement as a BHP Peer Mentor, Vice President for the Undergraduate Business Council and as a member of the recruitment committee for Texas Blazers. He says he appreciates how BHP helps students discover their passion and mold it into something great, whether that be a passion for medicine, non-profit work or a traditional route like consulting. After graduating, Kyle plans to pursue a career in consulting and eventually go to law school to become a corporate lawyer.

Class of 2016

 

 

Nicole chose to add a major in Management Information Systems to her dual BHP and Plan II majors. The technical skills she has gained from MIS have complemented those she gained from her BHP and Plan II majors. After graduation, she plans to pursue a career in management consulting and has already completed consulting internships with Accenture and McKinsey. Nicole has been involved in many organizations during her time at UT Austin, but feels she found her home on the Forty Acres through the Honors Business Association. She feels that HBA has been fundamental to her college experience, and has allowed her to get to know her professors, as well as alumni of the program. She is also involved in Orange Jackets, a prestigious service organization, and Student Government. Nicole has appreciated UT’s research resources, which she became familiar with while working on her thesis for Plan II. She has also been impressed with just how vast UT’s network is, saying she has met Longhorns everywhere she has travelled.

Class of 2016

 

 

Varun was looking for a well-rounded education from his college experience and found it through combining Business Honors with Plan II, a Liberal Arts honors program. BHP provided a way for him to apply business concepts to important questions that companies face today, while Plan II encouraged him to think about not just what businesses do, but why they function in this way in society. This combination has even served as the inspiration for his senior thesis on how consumer trends have been influenced by the culture of a society. Varun is a student recruiter for the BHP and has been a leader for the Honors Business Association. He has taken advantage of international opportunities during his time here. His freshmen year, he interned in Shanghai through the BE Global Internship Program and this past summer he interned in Singapore with the Gerson Lehrman Group. Varun is interested in management consulting after graduation. He hopes to be able to one day start his own foundation in global development, doing work that is similar to the work done through the Clinton Global Initiative.
