I first decided to become an SBI ambassador when I realized how much SBI enhanced my education. I learned so much in such a short amount of time and I cannot think of a more productive way to have spent my summer break. Since completing SBI, I have decided to pursue a finance minor and am now even considering a career in financial services. But even if I do not end up working in financial services, the business knowledge I gained in SBI definitely compliments my economics and history majors. Business plays a role in any line of work and a basic understanding of business concepts is helpful to anyone. This understanding has given me the tools to succeed in the business component of any field, a skill that will be invaluable in the future.  For me, the most memorable experience of SBI had to be the opportunity to work on a comprehensive market strategy for a real company and get to present to their executives. I felt like I was doing work that actually may contribute to a company. As an economics major, most of the work I generally do is theoretical, but being able to do a real world assignment was one of the highlights of SBI for me.
