"With benefits research, leave no stone unturned."
Submitted by Victoria Matus, Mays School of Business, Texas A&M University, Class of 2015
I’m a second year student in the class of 2015 at the Mays School of Business, Texas A&M University. I’m a native Texan, and received my BA in Humanities in 2009 from the University of Texas at Austin. Before business school, I served for four years as an officer in the United States Army, during which I completed one combat tour in Iraq.
I decided to pursue my MBA as a way to help me make the transition from service member to business professional. Because I lacked a formal business education, I felt that an MBA would provide me with the best opportunities to combine my leadership experience from the military with the technical skills required in business. I’m currently the president of the Texas A&M chapter for the National Association of Women MBAs, and serve on the MBA program’s Student Advisory Board.
