Poets & Quants for Undergrads’ “The Best and Brightest Business Majors – Class of 2018” features two seniors from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. Sarina Haryanto and Cece Ukejianya are profiled among 100 of the top business majors, nationally, in the Class of 2018.
Sarina Haryanto, ’18, Supply Chain Management
What did you enjoy most about your business school? I enjoyed the experiential learning opportunities offered in the Smith School. Taking classes outside of my major was one of the best decisions because these experiences introduced me to alternative perspectives, as well as topics in higher education innovation and social impact. Interacting with the Center for Social Value Creation (CSVC) has also been the highlight of my undergraduate experience, inspiring me to address social and environmental challenges through business.
Cece Ukejianya, ’18, Accounting and Finance
Who is your favorite professor? My favorite professor is Progyan Basu (accounting and information assurance), because I can see the joy teaching brings him in everything he does. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the bureaucratic side of academics within a business school. Often, change receives push back from professors because it is difficult to implement. However, “Basu” has always been willing to continuously better his classes regardless of the difficulty if may bring him. This has allowed his class to seamlessly integrate new teaching techniques to keep his classes modern and engaging.
