While considering her future career choice, Jennifer Lopez said she opted to pursue a degree that would open as many options and strategies as possible.

As a first-year student at South Texas College, Jennifer said attending STC opened up a world of experiences and career choices that will enable her to make the right career choice.

Jennifer is pursuing an associate degree in Business Administration with a specialization Management Associated of Applied Science. She plans to pursue a bachelor degree in Technology Management once she graduates with the hopes of entering a career in accounting.

While at STC, Jennifer has participated in the college’s accounting club, and is currently participating as a student ambassador. Ambassadors promote South Texas College as a valuable educational option to current, prospective, returning and transfer students, parents, and community members.

“I started at STC in 2019 and it has been a wonderful experience,” Jennifer said. “I have tried learning as many new things as I could, including strategies for my future career.

“I really want to progress, especially here in the Valley,” she said. “I know there are plenty of great jobs down here if you know where to look.”

All courses within the Business Administration program are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). AT STC, the Management Associate of Applied Science program prepares students for various managerial positions including areas such as communication skills, accounting, human resource management, marketing, problem solving and decision-making.

“To students I would tell them to just keep going,” she said. “I know there are some dark times when you feel like you just can’t go anymore, but there is always that light of hope at the end of the tunnel.

“You can do it, just push yourself and keep going because at the end of the day it will all work out for you,” she said.
