Hi! My name is Ali and I am from Simsbury, CT. I will be a senior this year and have a passion for teamwork and connecting with other people, which is why I chose Management as my major. Throughout my time at UConn, I have participated in intramural sports, leadership classes, and Greek Life. Last summer, I facilitated the UConn First Summer 2018 program where I put my leadership skills to work and managed 64 incoming students! I recently finished an internship with Aetna in their underwriting department in Hartford, Connecticut, which was so much fun! For my senior year, I am looking forward to my management classes, working at the Alumni Relations Office in the School of Business, going to UConn sports games, and being with my friends.

Hi I'm Suxian! This year I will be a Senior majoring in Management with a concentration in Human Capital Management along with pursuing a double minor in English and Digital Marketing & Analytics. In addition to being a student in the School of Business I love to be involved on campus. In my first two years as a UConn student I attended the Hartford campus where I was an Orientation Leader and a member of several clubs such as the UConn HARTS - Community Outreach Society, Pre-Med Society, and the Business Society. Currently at the Storrs campus I am a member of the Delta Zeta sorority where I serve as the Vice President of Programs, the Business Management Society and a student worker for the Management Department. This summer I spent my time interning for a local family business through UConn's Family Business Program. I am excited to see what this year brings for me!

My name is Urmi Thaker, and I am a current senior studying management with an international business concentration and a minor in Psychology. I am a transfer student from the Avery Point campus where I was actively involved in the Associated Student Government and Husky Ambassadors program. Through these multiple leadership opportunities I was able to apply to the School of Business.
