Welcome to the Department of Economics

Santiago Fernandez took advantage of each opportunity and became more than a student leader. He leveraged his resources and earned a position at Southwire, became a member of the Dean's Council of Student Leaders, President of the Management Club and a mentor for other international students. Santiago says, "Being a UWG student opens a lot of doors." Accessing companies like Southwire, he found a large UWG connection that took his network to the next level.
