Born in Venezuela, Jaime Mizrahi is a dual-degree student with a passion for research. For the last two years, he has worked as an assistant with Dr. Gumersindo Rodriguez, a former minister of economics for the Venezuelan government and chairman to the World Bank. Mizrahi’s contributions helped with the successful publication of two Venezuelan economics books. Currently, the two are working jointly on a project involving a benefit-cost analysis of government-financed education aids in oil production countries.
A dean’s list scholar since his arrival at USF, Mizrahi is a participant in the College of Business Corporate Mentor Program and National Honor Society, as well as many student groups. He is involved with the International Business Board, Latin American Student Association, and the Jewish Center.
A marketing and economics double-major, who is also pursuing a minor in international business, Mizrahi spent a semester in Denmark in 2009, participating in an international exchange program. Outside of USF, he serves as a mentor advising students from Venezuela during their cultural and academic transition to the United States.
After graduation, Mizrahi plans to attend graduate school to continue his economics research.
