“I am extremely thankful for the extra time and effort professors poured into my educational development.” Larraga says the experience that most impacted him during his time at UNK was conducting a case study through the small business management course. “We selected local companies in Kearney to perform strategic and financial analysis. The owner was impressed with the content of the analysis and amazed with the reports, and now I currently work for this company.”
