Luis Alitagtag 

Program: Business Technology Management

Year: 2

Hey, everyone! I’m Luis; I’m in my second year of the Business Technology Management program minoring in Finance. I’m so excited to be a TedPack Mentor with Fit for Business this year.

I currently serve as a Board of Directors member of the Ted Rogers Students’ Society, the student-led organization that represents over 13,000 students at the Ted Rogers School of Management and bridges the gap between students, professors, and faculty.

When I'm not studying or getting involved with student groups, I like to play video games, paint with watercolours, and work as a barista part-time.

This is a full-circle experience for me because I was in your shoes a year ago today. If you have any questions about student life or would like to chat, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I can’t wait to support you at such a pivotal moment in your undergraduate career."
