We are proud to announce that several Global Pathways program alumni were awarded honors before Pace University’s graduation ceremonies this year. They have been recognized for their outstanding academic achievements, as well as for their active roles within the University community.
Pace’s Lubin School of Business honors the graduating students who have achieved the highest grade point average (GPA) in each of its undergraduate and graduate degree programs. This year, an impressive 7 of the 27 award-winning students were alumni of the Global Pathways program.
Meanwhile, Global Pathways program alumnus Vaibhav Dubey (MS Information Systems) received the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems Alumni Achievement Award. Vaibhav was recognized for his academic excellence as well as his active participation in the Pace community.
Preparing students for academic success
Global Pathways program Director Catrillia Young sees these recent achievements as a clear sign that Pace University Pathways is preparing students to be academically successful from the time they arrive at Pace all the way through graduation.
“My team provides extensive, personalized academic advising so that students can easily handle coursework after completing their pathway program. Students learn study skills and gain a clear understanding of the academic resources available at Pace.”
Shijia Wu, who earned top honors for the MBA program in Accounting, believes that the Global Pathways program provides “the perfect transition” for international students coming to study and live in the USA for the first time.
“I’ve seen a lot of Global Pathways program students gain confidence in their coursework, job searches, and in their interactions with professors and other students.”
During the program, she made many new friends, learned about American culture, and improved her communication and writing skills.
Lingzhi Dai (MS Accounting) agrees. “I still remember how scared I used to be to speak in public. I was afraid of making mistakes. But the Global Pathways program helped me to build up my courage.”
Success beyond Pace University
The honored students continue to impress following their recent graduation. For example, Vaibhav and Lingzhi have accepted positions at MasterCard Worldwide and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), respectively. Shijia will begin a PhD program in Accounting at the University of California, Irvine this autumn.
