"When I realized I was transferring from University of Virginia, I was looking for a school that has a great business school. My search narrowed down and WSU was the best choice I could have made. I chose the Management and Human Resource Management double major because of the great reputation they had. Being AACSB accredited says a lot about the quality of faculty, staff and students. I was also impressed by the accomplishments of College of Business students in national competitions. My personal belief is that there are not enough good managers out there. The HR and Management programs at Wright State have given me skills to manage projects, think strategically and motivate people no matter what profession I choose."
Why Wright State?
Because I was living and working on my own, I had to find the most affordable and best quality business program around. I met with Charles Long, my business advisor, and knew that Wright State offered both the best value and a quality AACSB-accredited program. Plus, the very supportive faculty and staff helped me even before I formally transferred to the College of Business.
Tips for Success
- Don’t get caught up in things that don’t matter
- Networking is crucial for both social and academic success
- Enjoy college to the fullest because it is really short and quite possibly the best time in your life
- Make sure to get involved in organizations. They provide a lot of opportunities
- Make sure you do the things that make YOU happy, not what others might think
My involvement with campus organizations has greatly benefited me both academically and socially. I am a member of Dean's Student Advisory Board and am currently the College of Business Senator for Student Government. Also, I just finished four years of NCAA eligibility playing for Wright State Men’s Soccer Team.
The most fulfilling project I have completed has to be the Human Resource Practicum class with Professor Sincoff. It took two quarters of back-to-back classes and an immense amount of group and individual work. This class sets apart Wright State Human Resource graduates from any school in United States, and I mean ANY school! Along with my group, I have created a consulting handbook for a small business that is worth at least $50.000 if done by professionals.
When I graduate, my plan is to play professional soccer in Europe. At the same time I will enroll in a Master’s program in Belgrade, Serbia. My aspirations are to obtain a PhD by my 28th birthday and be a CEO of a Fortune 1000 company by the age of 35 if soccer doesn’t pan out as planned.
Most Valuable Experience
I have a problem picking out one moment in my academic experience that was the most valuable. I would have to say that my entire experience as an undergraduate student at the College of Business was great and fulfilling. Being recognized by the Dean, faculty and staff for my achievements is both a humbling and motivating experience. The College of Business does a great job of bringing out the best in each student.
