Our STEM Path to the MBA students are achieving and
innovating at a level that is bringing national recognition to
our College and University—like our EcoCar 3 Team that
is competing with 15 other university teams in developing
an eco friendly car and is listed as “The Team to Watch.”
Or like Megan Torman who, as a freshman, became the
youngest in UA’s history to receive a provisional patent
on an invention, or Christian Shannon who spends his
summers at a youth camp for children who are terminally ill.
Those in other business fields are also excelling and
proving the Millennial stereotype to be a myth, like
Brandon Turner, who started as a freshman helping a
local dentist in his hometown manage his practice, or
accounting students in the LIFT program who are dedicating
their time each day to help those in the local community
develop better business skills so they can get better jobs.
The next time you hear the generalization that Millennials are
self-absorbed, feel privileged and are lazy, think about these
students and how they are proving that generalization wrong.
