Viewing life as an adventure Julieta Nelson has been on an extraordinary journey during her time in the UTSA College of Business. She graduates this month with a bachelor’s degree in finance and a new career as a consulting analyst in New York City with Accenture, a global Fortune 500 company.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to explore the incredible abundance of programs, resources and experiences,” said Nelson, a San Antonio native. She credits the Center for Student Professional Development, Julio Ramos, Leticia Garcia, Erica Clark and other mentors and colleagues who helped her to grow both personally and professionally.
Making the most of her time at UTSA, she completed two externships with EY and Harland Clarke as well as two internships with USAA and Accenture. Along the way she gained vital real world knowledge in finance from Ron Sweet and Lalatendu Misra. Additionally Kevin Martin’s project management courses inspired her to dream big.
“Don’t be afraid to take risks. Go for it. Then analyze your outcomes to teach yourself how to maximize your strengths and manage your weaknesses,” recommends Nelson, who is a Distinguished Business Student. “Throughout my time at UTSA I’ve tried to push myself to attempt challenging goals even when doing so is scary or uncomfortable.”
