University of Utah, MBA Student
Salt Lake City, UT

I recently graduated from Dixie State, where I was very involved in excellent programs like the DECA and Executive Leadership clubs, among other activities. My undergraduate education in Business, along with my minor in Spanish and involvement in extracurricular activities, helped pave the way for my acceptance into the University of Utah straight out of college. There were many professors and mentors at Dixie State who aided me in getting the most out of my education. I’m proud to be able to apply the skills I gained from DSU in my academic and professional pursuits in my Master of Business Administration program. The Udvar-Hazy School of Business was an incredible launching pad to guide me toward my graduate school goals, and I’m excited to see the institution’s continual improvement.
