Colleen Kurecka is currently a junior in the business school at the University of Detroit Mercy. Originally from Saginaw, Michigan, Colleen changed her career goals many times while growing up, but at the end of the day she always knew she wanted to be in business, managing projects and traveling the world.
Colleen saw UDM as the obvious choice because of the excellent opportunities offered by the College of Business Administration, in addition to the fond memories she had of Detroit from when she was younger. The finance major has not been disappointed in her past three years on campus and in the city. She even spent last summer working in downtown Detroit and calls it one of the best summers of her life.
Now, the junior is working on perfecting her resume so she can have multiple career options upon graduation. While she loves the idea of traveling far and wide, Colleen has always believed that one of the best parts of traveling is returning home at the end of the journey.
