Kwadwo Owusu remembers being glued to TV news in 2008 as the financial crisis unfolded. He was just 13 years old, but it changed the trajectory of his life.
“It baffled me how decisions made in corporate offices could literally affect individuals and the economy as a whole,” he said.
So, it came as no surprise to his family when he decided to double major in finance and accounting at Minnesota State University. And that path led to a financial analyst internship at Best Buy in 2019.
