Meet a University of Texas at Tyler Graduate

MBA Adds Up to VP + CPA

Kim Partin

“I’ve worked at Southside Bank for 15 years. Originally hired as a trust assistant, I knew I would need more education if I were ever going to advance in my career. In January 2006 I entered the BBA-MBA program at UT Tyler. It wasn’t easy working all day at the bank and attending classes at night, but now that I’ve finished my MBA I can say it was definitely worth it.

“The bank has promoted me to Vice President of Trust and Investment Services and I am studying to complete the two remaining sections of the CPA exam. Advanced education from an outstanding program made a big difference in my career.”

Kim Partin, Whitehouse, TX BBA-MBA, 2010
