How has DMHP enhanced your UT Dallas experience?

The Davidson Management Honors Program (DMHP) helped prepare to me for a demanding and rewarding career in public accounting. I received the opportunity to volunteer, travel, attend luncheons and networking events, and work with the top faculty and students at UT Dallas. These opportunities helped me develop networking skills that now help me maintain my relationships in my career. I learned to thrive in challenging environments, communicate effectively, and produce high quality work. Most importantly, DMHP helped me value corporate citizenship and team development. I use these skills daily when I interact with clients, my teams, and management. I also use these skills to promote thriving team environments where team members respect individuality while providing quality results. DMHP provided me with life experiences and lessons that cannot be taught in textbooks, and I am privileged to have received the opportunities that I did while being a part of DMHP. I continue my involvement and personal growth by being a member of the DMHP Alumni Affinity Board.

Without DMHP, I would not have built up the professional network I have in the business world or pursued the same caliber of opportunities within it. Being surrounded by people that are excited to learn and grow pushes me to be just as excited.

How did DMHP enhance your UT Dallas experience?

Honors students like me are so passionate about learning and challenging themselves and DMHP offers us the perfect outlet for our curiosity. I have loved my DMHP experience because of the wonderful people I have met and experiences I’ve shared with them. There’s just some sort of excitement with the honors classes and it’s because you aren’t sitting in a room full of strangers; you’re sitting with the person you sat next to on the subway when you went on the DC/New York trip or the person you knocked out when playing dodgeball at Group Dynamix. You don’t just get that kind of classroom environment just anywhere.
