My name is Matt Krambule.  This is my second year being a part of SIBED and it has been a great experience.  Since being in this club, I have been exposed to so many people that share my common interests.  This club allows me to connect with resources that have given me insight on future careers and has allowed me to learn about foreign cultures I previously knew nothing about.

Areg Haytayan - VP Campus Gap

I am an International Business student from Armenia.  My profound interest in business relationships has encouraged me to persistently get involved in student clubs.  Living in diverse cultures has taught me that getting involved will not only be a good opportunity to create a business network, but also will improve my interpersonal skills.


I'm Jordan Mendenhall.  I am dual majoring in International Business and French and will graduate in May.  I am new to SIBED but I am really excited to be a part of it.  I am the Events Coordinator and enjoy planning events where students and faculty can learn more about different countries and cultures.


I am an International Business student with minors in German and Agribusiness.  I have traveled to 16 different countries and lived in two.  I work at the Shingo Institute as the Development Coordinator and am the liaison for the Leaders for Continuous Improvement.  I speak German and Danish, and I'm the mother of two children.


I was raised in San Diego and completed high school in Pleasant Grove, Utah.  I am a junior in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing.  I am a member of the Women in Business Association and the Events Coordinator for the Global Affairs Committee, as well as the Go Global Liaison for SIBED.  Last year I participated in the Go Global program in South America and an internship at The Larrison Group in Washington, D.C.  Through these experiences I was able to gain international experience and knowledge regarding political fundraising.  In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, rock climbing, music, and traveling.


I have lived in Utah almost my entire life.  I am a senior studying Economics with minors in Business and Food Science.  This is my first year with SIBED and I'm primarily interested in the economic development arena.  I participated in the Go Global program to Vietnam, China, and Korea this past summer and loved it!  I plan on getting a master's degree in public health and working in that field.  I love being in the mountains, rock climbing, baseball, good movies, and playing "violão brasileiro" (Brazilian classical guitar).

sierra hoffer - Marketing Director

Hey I am Sierra!  I am a junior from Sandy studying Marketing and Political Science.  I am also very interested in Environmental Studies, especially horticulture.  This is my first year in SIBED and as a Marketing Director.  I want to get more students, and not just business students, involved in international experiences.  I love traveling and find the history and culture fascinating!  Not to mention, I love being able to expand my views on my career as I gain a global perspective.

Savannah Olson - marketing director

I am a Management Information Systems major with an International Business minor.  I am a member of the Women in Business Association, the Finance and Economics Club, and AIS.  I am a Cache Valley native and this is my second year at USU.  This is also my second year with SIBED.  I joined SIBED to understand how we can improve the functioning of our global economy, and I have learned a lot of great information so far!

Luis Patino - Treasurer

I am currently serving as treasurer for this amazing organization.  Outside of this role, I enjoy encouraging others to take part in international opportunities in programs like SEED or Go Global, as well as helping out with event planning and recruitment.  I spent this past summer in Eastern Europe with our adviser, John Ferguson, as part of the Go Global program.  It is a terrific way to build a network, especially if you are planning on working in those countries.
