MDMichael Dinh, Others Before Self

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 finds that UD’s emphasis on writing ability and communication has truly benefited him in the professional world.

“The ability to learn to communicate ideas succinctly can’t be understated. Getting to the point, writing succinctly, and making yourself clear are necessary to succeed at UD, and in life afterwards.”

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.
