An International Student Adds Business to Engineering
Samuel came with a group of 100 students from the Dominican Republic in 2007. He received his undergraduate in aerospace engineering in 2011 and immediately started his MBA at the Huntsman School.
One thing Samuel enjoyed about his experience at the Huntsman school is the opportunity he has had to travel. He has visited countries such as China, Jordan, Israel, and South Korea, all because of the MBA program.
Samuel said that a lot of people told him that the skills of the MBA program would not contribute to his undergraduate engineering degree.
But Samuel strongly disagrees.
“I think the skills from engineering complement what I am learning at the school of business,” he said.
Samuel is a dedicated student who desires to be a leader.
“I think an engineer with a MBA can have a bigger impact,” Samuel said. “As an engineer you build things, but as a leader you can do that, plus more.”
Last October Samuel was invited to attend the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) in Anaheim, on behalf of the Huntsman School. The networking opportunities there led to a full-time job at Ernst & Young in Austin, Texas.
