McCoy College of Business:
The Perfect Place To Be

By Britney Munguia

Spending most of her time at McCoy Hall, Alexandra Ortiz is finding herself very much at home.

After all, it didn’t take long for her to figure out that marketing is the right field for her.

“It’s a perfect place to interact with others and constantly be learning more about your environment and the business world,” says Ortiz, a junior at Texas State. “It is just the perfect place for me.”

Ortiz says the McCoy College of Business Administration is helping her attain real-life experience. Professors often use a hands-on approach when dealing with projects and presentations, rather than typical testing policies.

“Here you are not just another number, and professors care about your success,” says Ortiz.

Aside from keeping busy in the classroom, Ortiz is an active member of Delta Gamma Sorority, University Ambassadors and Students In Free Enterprise.

“My organizations allow me to network with others that share similar interests and can even assist me once I graduate,” she says.

Students in Free Enterprise offers students the opportunity to develop leadership, teamwork and communication skills through learning, practicing and teaching the principles of free enterprise. Ortiz says being a part of SIFE can help her grow as a person, as well as with a team.

Originally from Austin, Ortiz chose to attend Texas State University because of the unique atmosphere, friendly students and faculty, and the tremendous scholarship opportunities.

The McCoy College of Business Administration has approximately 3,200 undergraduate students and 450 graduate students fulfilling one of the business degrees offered.

Business degrees offered through the McCoy College are accounting, computer information systems and quantitative methods, finance and economics, management, and marketing.
