As a transfer student into accounting, the accounting Kickstart really put things in perspective and helped orientate me on things I had to do to not fall behind.

Participating in the Plus3 Costa Rica program after my first year at Pitt Business has been one of the highlights of my college career so far. I was able to get early exposure to how global supply chains function, which helped me confirm that I wanted to study Supply Chain Management at Pitt Business.
