Patel was attracted to the MA-HR program in 2018 after completing his bachelor’s degree in finance at the Lindner College of Business. His first co-op in the human resources department at Kings Island piqued his interest in HR. From there, he got involved in UC’s Society for Human Resources Management, which provided networking opportunities with local HR professionals and a way for him to connect his studies to his work experience.
“There is immense potential in both human capital and financial capital in any organization,” said Patel. “My experience in both the finance and human resources disciplines will help me make a difference for organizations.
“From here, the sky is the limit,” continued Patel. “Learning is a lifelong journey. I’ll always be finding new ways to learn and grow in my profession.”
