Susana Lacouture ’18 VSB was selected as one of Poets & Quants for Undergrads’ 2018 Best & Brightest Business Majors. Poets & Quants chose 100 students from around the nation who use their skills to impact business in creative ways and who are poised to be the future leaders of the business world. After graduation, Lacouture joined Barclays as an Investment Banking analyst in New York City.
“Susana is genuinely kind and generous with her time and energy,” said Kim Cahill, the Moran Center for Global Leadership director. “She was always the first to volunteer anytime I needed student representatives and has interned in three different regions of the world, giving her a unique outlook on global business.”
Lacouture, from Houston, Texas, majored in Finance, Economics and International Business with a minor in French, and is a Global Leadership Fellow. Lacouture was the chief economics officer for Villanova’s Equity Society, a fundraising committee member for Student-Run Emergency Housing Unit of Pennsylvania, and a member of the French National Honor Society and National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
"The Global Leadership Fellows program has provided me with unparalleled opportunities during my undergraduate career. I've studied abroad twice, participated in two International Business Case Competitions and have interned in three different countries, giving me a unique global perspective that I can draw upon throughout my career. I have also made invaluable connections both with other GLF students and the members of the Moran Center Advisory Council, especially my mentor, Al Martinez-Fonts ’71 CLAS. My experiences have without a doubt prepared me for a career in global business." – Susana Lacouture ’18 VSB
