Angeline Mathew
Angeline Mathew Breaks Stereotypes and Heads to Wall Street

Angeline Mathew doesn’t fit into a mold, she breaks them. A native of Dubai, Mathew moved to San Antonio with her family when she was 12 and graduated from Health Careers High School. Mathew’s spark for finance was fueled by Ron Sweet, lecturer II in finance and advisor to the Investment Society. “I credit my success to Professor Sweet and the Investment Society,” said Mathew, who is the mergers and acquisitions chair in the Investment Society. “It was fun to be a part of the boys club. I developed a great circle of friends.” She will leave for London this summer to train as a leveraged fixed income analyst at Deutsche Bank then begin work on Wall Street this fall.

Edgar Ibarra
Entrepreneurship Runs in Edgar Ibarra's Blood

Fueled by the entrepreneurial success of his father and grandfather, Edgar Ibarra graduated with a BBA in entrepreneurship and a promising business venture. "UTSA really gives you the tools to be successful in life," he shared. "If you're willing to get out of your comfort zone and use those tools, you can accomplish so much." Last semester his team won the UTSA $100K Student Technology Venture Competition for his teams prototype sleep apnea device and business plan. After graduation he plans to continue working with iSleepTech to help get the company and its product off the ground toward commercialization.

Timothy Breidenbach
Investment Society Leads Timothy Breidenbach to Goldman Sachs

As a child Timothy Breidenbach dreamed about being the guy dressed in a business suit seated in first class on an airplane.  Well, his dream could soon become a reality as he graduates this week with his undergraduate degree in finance and economics and heads to Wall Street to work at Goldman Sachs. After serving in the Coast Guard, Breidenbach returned to Texas and began his studies at UTSA. But, he didn’t feel at home at UTSA until he participated in his first Investment Society meeting. “Seeing like-minded individuals going for the same goal gave me clarity,” he said. He worked his way up through the ranks and became the organization’s longest-serving president.

Stephanie Dalmau
Stephanie Dalmau Looks at Business Globally

International business and finance major Stephanie Dalmau completed her UTSA journey this week when she received her BBA--graduating cum laude with international distinction and highest honor.

As part of her honors thesis, Dalmau conducted research with Stewart Miller, chair and professor of management. Her paper was focused on international trade between Peru and the United States since the implementation of the Trade Promotion Agreement in 2009.
