HOMETOWN

San Salvador, El Salvador

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE DANIELS?

I chose Daniels due to a variety of reasons. First, I liked the school due to its ranking as well as the small program, which provides the opportunity to network with professors, alumni, and classmates. Second, I like how the school is focused on applying business to the greater good. And third, having Denver (one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S.) as your backyard can give you the opportunity to network with people and intern at some of the firms located here.
