Class year: 2019

Hometown: Dubai, UAE

Our 2018-19 College of Business Ambassadors share stories about how the college has supported them throughout their academic journey. This week, we connected with Nader Afyouni, a second-year ambassador.


Nader Afyouni had a strong passion for economics for the very beginning.

“It's importance and contributions to the world are tremendous,” he said. “The subject touches absolutely everything from the personal decisions we make on a daily basis to the framing of nationwide public policy.”

However, Afyouni knew he wanted to take on more within the College of Business and decided to double major in economics and finance.

The COB staff supported him during a time where he was unsure of his academic track. Now, he wants to give back to the college and become a mentor to inspire the next generation of Business Bobcats so they can make it through similar situations.

Afyouni wants students to take more advantage of career coaching through the college’s Career & Student Success Center.

“It pays off massively to find out what you love doing earlier rather than later,” he said.

Below, Nader Afyouni answers a few questions relating to his experiences on campus:

What extracurricular activities do you participate in?

I'm an active member of the Professional Business Fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, where I serve as the VP of Chapter Operations. I’m also an active member of the Select Leaders Development Program as the VP of Alumni Relations. I enjoy participating in intramural soccer with my friends, and I want to begin venturing out into activities outside of the COB during my senior year.

What is one fun fact about you?

I share a birthday with my brother and sister even though we were all born in different years.

What’s your favorite spot on campus to study?

Schoonover Center because I can easily step out to College Green if I need a break!
