Brian Truong
Testimonial: Business Administration - University of Utah
I decided to study Business Administration due to the prodigious career opportunities and the comfort of job security it has to offer. As a result, the major has allowed me to gain a broader, holistic and fundamental view of the business industry. Having taken courses from various emphases within the David Eccles School of Business, I now have knowledge in accounting, finance, management, marketing and operations. My field of study allowed me to become a well-rounded individual who is flexible and adaptable within the business world.
