Michael credits UD’s classes with providing real-life applications to the subject matter of his Economics major and “inspiring me to pursue analytics, which was one of the best decisions of my life.”

Michael has taken these skills and used them to become an asset in Risk Analysis and Portfolio Forecasting for GM Financial in the DFW area.
