“The Wisconsin School of Business community has taught me that by dedicating yourself, demonstrating a tenacious work ethic, and being grateful for each opportunity you earn can lead to wonderful accomplishments.

Hridoy Das
“An urge to help others drives my passion for making an impact on society because I understand the impact someone’s support can have. I am grateful for my mentors who helped me in my transformative journey from a remote village in India to the Wisconsin School of Business, which was nothing short of a miracle. Now as a Badger, I am even more eager to help others!”
