Lisa N., McCombs School of Business, Business Honors ProgramGoing to UT was a no-brainer because I absolutely love the city of Austin — and burnt orange. I became interested in business back in high school when I started my own tutoring company, so choosing to be a student in the Business Honors Program at the McCombs School of Business was also an easy choice — I knew it was top-ranked among business schools nationwide and I had a realistic opportunity for scholarships.

The availability of financial aid was imperative for my education — without scholarships I wouldn’t be at UT.

In addition to being a business student, I’m also majoring in Spanish and Portuguese and have a passion for international travel. I interned with a nonprofit organization in Brazil that helped people with disabilities find work. It was awesome to use my business skills acquired in the classroom at UT in an office environment in another country. I helped them create a database of all their contacts and networks so they could be more organized and efficient in their placement process. It was an incredible opportunity, and I really felt like I made a difference.

I hope you will make a difference today by supporting the McCombs School of Business Annual Giving Program. Gifts of all sizes can help a McCombs BHP student experience something new and different, like traveling abroad.

When I leave campus, I will definitely be a donor. There is no question that scholarships and support through the Annual Giving Program alleviate stress on students. With the support of alumni like you, we can focus on learning how to make it in business and not the business of paying for college. Help change a BHP student’s life today and make your gift online.
