Meet the Class of 2010 - Alejandra
One of the unique attributes of the DeVos Sport Business Management Program is the network of students who make up our program. Our class will take every course together during our tenure here at UCF and we will work on countless group projects and collaborative efforts. As a result of our shared interests in the business of sport, a natural team camaraderie is formed. However, our team is composed of people from diverse backgrounds, experiences and ambitions. We offer profiles of class members to give you an idea as to the type of people who make up our program, individuals who collectively will be leaders in sport and society and will be teammates for life.
Name: Alejandra Diaz-Calderon
Hometown: Guadalajara, Mexico
Undergraduate College: University of Notre Dame
Undergraduate Major: Finance
Background: Captain of the Notre Dame Women's Golf Team for 2007 and 2008, SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Council) golf representative, Notre Dame Big East SAAC representative
Current Graduate Assistantship or Employment: G.A. in the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports (TIDES)
Future Career Goals: In process of targeting my ideal career choice, but as of today I'd be most interested in working in college athletics.
Reasons For Choosing DeVos: I identified through several sources that DeVos was regarded as one of the top 5 programs in the country for Sport Business Management. What separated DeVos from the rest of the pack was it's focus on social issues plaguing sports and knowing that we would be empowered to be leaders on confronting these problems.
