Rendy Suryo is a student of the world. Having traveled extensively, he is poised and eager to be unleashed onto the global business environment.
A graduating senior focused on a bachelor’s degree in finance, Suryo has skipped around the globe, studying in Indonesia, Australia and China as well as the United States. He speaks four languages: Indonesian, Javanese, English and Mandarin Chinese. Learning so many new languages is a testament to his persistence and tenacity, something that will come in handy in the complicated world of global finance.
He is a recipient of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level I Scholarship and is also pursuing the certification. Citibank in collaboration with USF acknowledged him as their Anti Money Laundering graduate in 2016 and earlier this year, as a Third Party Risk Management graduate.
His wide ranging travels have instilled in Suryo an ability to adapt to new environments quickly and work closely with people from different backgrounds. He is a graduate of The Global Leadership Program at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, and attended classes at the Qingdao University in Shandong, China, where he taught English to elementary school students. In Australia, he was involved with Catholic Student Asian Society to serve the homeless and raised money to support education through an Indonesian NGO.
Suryo is currently serving as a financial literacy content expert for both elementary and high school students in a program administered by Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay. He will graduate with an overall 3.88 grade-point average and receive an Undergraduate Research credit for his involvement in the Business Case Competition.
