Student Testimonials

Eli Murphy

Elijah Murphy, BS’21

Current student

During my freshman year at The University of Texas at Dallas, I found the BSBA program to be integral to my success. Not only did I learn a lot about the business world and what I have to look forward to in my career path, but I also learned a lot about myself. Through various self-evaluations and the opportunity to listen to professors from several departments of the business school, I discovered where my interests in the field of business lie and what I can do to improve myself to reach my professional goals.
