Originally from Colombia, Daniel Atuesta โ€™23 worked as a clinical therapist for four years and had the opportunity to support survivors of human trafficking.

His drive and desire to make a bigger impact led him to the University of San Diego's Knauss School of Business โ€” and his love of data led him to pursue the dual MBA and MS in Business Analytics program.

"Although I had a mission and a goal, I was lacking the toolset. Being a part of the Knauss School of Business gave me all the necessary tools to go out into the world and make change happen."
