Max Ismoilov ’20 is no stranger to picking up and starting anew. His Marian University experience began as a transfer student in 2017 when he started his career as a collegiate tennis player and double major in accounting and finance.
“Playing tennis in college was a dream come true. I love to play tennis. I loved going out and representing Marian,” Ismoilov said. Transferring into Marian was by far an easier adjustment than the one he had gone through two years prior. Ismoilov is a native of Uzbekistan. “The adjustment of coming to America was huge,” Ismoilov said. Outside of tennis, Ismoilov found a home at Marian through the Byrum School of Business.
“My favorite part of being at Marian was the faculty and staff. They care about you so much. It feels like family here, you don’t have to look for help, the help looks for you,” Ismoilov said.
Ismoilov was the vice president of the Alpha Delta Gamma national fraternity on campus and was the presidential ambassador for the Byrum School of Business. The leadership skills he’s honed through these experiences earned him an internship at the worldwide accounting firm EY.
“I am very proud to say that I am a graduate of Marian University and have been given the opportunity to intern at EY,” Ismoilov said.
