I first came to the University of Wyoming in 2013 for a one-year study abroad program, as part of my undergraduate degree in Renewable Energy. I came back to pursue my MBA with an emphasis on Energy Management in 2015, for many reasons. University of Wyoming is very unique, not only is it the only university in the state, but it has a focus and an atmosphere that is unlike any other. As a UW student you are automatically well-connected as the university provides great opportunities for connecting with the corporate and private sector of any industry you are pursuing. As an MBA student I am constantly challenged, both personally and academically to do my best, and I am confident that I will land my dream job post-graduation. Laramie is a fun college town, with a bigger city feel captured in a small town body. The outdoor opportunities are endless, you can hike, ski, snowshoe, trail run and mountain climb right outside town. University of Wyoming has a lot to offer, and the student body all have something in common, which is the uniqueness of Wyoming. show less
