Hello, my name is Pushkar and I am from India. I am currently enrolled in Master’s in Financial Analytics at Bentley and after graduation, I hope to find success in the financial sector. I like that Bentley offers significant value in the fields of accounting and finance in addition to top-notch resources for understanding concepts through practical applications. FI 799, "Applying ESG for Sustainable Investment," is one of my favorite courses because it teaches students how to apply investment discipline tactics that incorporate ESG governance information to provide long-term profitable financial returns and positive societal consequences. I joined the student ambassador program with the goal of assisting prospective students with their future in the best way I could.

Hello, my name is Juliana Balladares, also known as Julie and I’m originally from Miami, Florida. I am currently enrolled in the MSA program with a concentration in Advisory and plan to work in public accounting upon graduation and completing my CPA. I chose Bentley University because of the small student-to-professor ratio, exceptional career services, and good university rankings. My favorite course at Bentley is Internal Audit because it is an interactive and creative hands-on course for the work I plan to be doing when I begin working full-time. I received a lot of advice when I moved to Waltham to pursue my MSA and being a student ambassador gives me the opportunity to pass the knowledge to future students to help them make the best of their education at Bentley.
