"My sophomore year consumer finance course with Professor Tomas Dvorak was one of the most important courses I’ve taken. We learned how to manage finances and how money actually works. That was a perfect introduction to finance. I’ll be able to apply these concepts on a bigger scale." - Connor Light '18
