In May, the Merrick School of Business celebrated our top students at the annual Academic Achievement Awards during a virtual event. This year the top award, the Dean's Award, went to Alexander Hosseini, B.S. ’20 (business administration, international business). To earn this honor he had to demonstrate high academic achievement, leadership and service. Hosseini, transferred from Howard Community College to The University of Baltimore was looking to expand his foundational business knowledge. During his time at UBalt he was a member of the Helen P. Denit Honors Program and a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success.

“The University of Baltimore gave me a hands-on and practical application of business. I got better at data analysis and spreadsheet management in Professor Cavazos’ Business Statistics and Data Analytics classes, as well as in Professor Gerlowksi’s Money and Banking class. My experience at UBalt culminated in two Global Field Study courses focusing on the countries of Finland and Ghana where we consulted with startup companies. These were my first trips out of the country.”


In addition to excelling academically, Hosseini volunteered as a tutor at both the University of Baltimore and Howard Community College, all while working part-time as a retail manager. He is about to begin a new job at Loyola University Maryland as program assistant.
