International Payroll Specialist, LATAM at Expedia Group
When I first arrived at the University of Texas at Dallas, I was looking for a program to enrich and challenge me. The BS Global Business program was the perfect fit for my educational goals. After I started my courses, I found the program far exceeded my expectations.
The program created a unique and diverse learning environment that prepared me for real-world challenges within the global business world. Additionally, my professors made the journey exciting by exposing me to student organizations, competitions, volunteer opportunities, fundraising raising events, and study abroad programs.
I also earned the opportunity to present my undergrad research at renowned academic institutions such as Harvard, Oxford, and Cambridge. Besides the outstanding academic opportunities, I also learned practical skills that opened many doors for me professionally. Participating in extracurricular activities enhanced my resume and set an essential baseline of experience that gave me a tremendous competitive edge during interviews.
I’m so grateful for the mentors and classmates that helped me strive along the way.
Develop strong research skills that are especially relevant for students interested in an academic career. Each year the OSIM area sponsors a seminar series to bring researchers from other universities to UT Dallas.
