2014 Jeffrey W. Baus ’59 Scholarship Recipient
Biography: Weixiang Su is currently a senior at UCLA with a major in Business Economics, and a minor in Accounting. While maintaining a high standard of academic excellence, his journey at UCLA has been one of active learning and growth. He is eager to take on additional challenges besides required coursework, and has participated in more than 8 professional case competitions throughout college. He is also one of the co-founders of a premier business networking club on campus, Ascend at UCLA. He loves to read, skateboard, travel, and try new restaurants.
Future Plans: After a successful internship at EY this past summer, Weixiang will be starting his career at the firm in the assurance practice after graduation. He plans on continuing his history of excellence and success by obtaining an MBA in the future, and continue to gain knowledge in business and global economy.
What does the scholarship mean to me?: I am truly honored to have been selected as a recipient for the Jeffrey W. Baus ’59 Scholarship award. Mr. Baus himself was a partner at a prestigious public accounting firm prior to retirement, and I am beyond excited to start my journey on a similar path. The scholarship will allow me to focus more on my school work, and relieve me of the pressure of having to work part-time while having 26 units of classes in a single quarter. I hope to achieve success like Mr. Baus in the future, and give back to UCLA like he does.
