Congratulations to Mr. Rorian Pratyaksa (B.S. Applied Economics and B.S. Management of Financial Institutions, '14), co-founder of PayAccess, for being recognized as Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Asia in the field of Finance & Venture Capital.
"My time at SOE truly prepared me for what I want to become professionally and personally. The way the program being delivered is beyond excellent, it prepares me to be systematic, analytical, and practical simultaneously. The structured thinking has become a big part of my early successes, it helps me understand context through data, and always act with practicality. Beyond the classroom, while I learned a lot from the classes, I learned even more from my interaction with professors and fellow students. I found mentors and lifelong friends, the support system that always pushes me to strive for the best. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity, forever proud to part of the SOE's family, and forever proud to be Lasallian." - Rorian Pratyaksa AE-FIN 2014
