Why he chose Santa Clara?

"I am a strong believer in the Jesuit education system, in the development of well-rounded men and women for others. This belief resonate itself in my deep familial connection to the university. The small class-size, great business schools and strong “real-world” connection made SCU a great springboard to start my life and career.”
