Alumni Perspectives

Cody Wingfield, who graduated with an MBA from the Soules College of Business in 2023.
The material I learned from Professor Doty’s courses is very relevant today, and it speaks to the caliber of professors at UT Tyler. I learned of the U.S. Federal Reserve and how the decisions they make reverberate through everyday life. This and many other elements from class helped me when studying finance and working in the finance industry.
