Just 20 years old, Dariana Granados will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in May as the first person in her family to earn a degree in the United States. A native of Colombia, Granados moved to the U.S. at 13 and graduated high school at 16; her first few college classes convinced her to pursue a career in business.

Faculty, her peers, and mentors at USF pushed her to overcome all challenges and she has taken every opportunity at the Muma College of Business to become a well-rounded leader. She volunteered to be the fundraising director for the International Student Association and is a peer leader of the Corporate Mentor Program. She has also served as the chief executive of national reporting for the national accounting honors fraternity Beta Alpha Psi, as president of the Accounting Society at USF and a campus ambassador for the FICPA and Becker.

“But, my journey goes beyond my involvement in school,” she says. “Gaining professional experience to acquire technical skills and develop myself professionally has always been a priority.”

While attending school full time, she landed five internships including an Audit and Assurance internship with PricewaterhouseCoopers and with Goldman Sachs’ Investment Banking Controllers. She is the recipient of several scholarships including the Lynn Pippenger Scholarship, the Ralph J. Poe, CPA Accounting Scholarship and the FICPA Scholarship.

Granados is studying for the Certified Public Accountant exam and will move to New York City this summer, where she will attend New York University’s Master of Science in Accounting program.
