Class of 2014 Profile: Tyler Yusko Takes on New York City



With a successful 2014 Commencement Ceremony behind us, recent High Point University graduates are preparing to commence prestigious career paths around the world at Fortune 500 companies, international service programs, public school systems, top-tier law, medical and graduate school programs, and many other esteemed organizations thanks to their journey at HPU. Here’s a glimpse of one extraordinary senior from the Class of 2014:

Name: Tyler Yusko

Major: Yusko graduated from HPU’s Fifth-Year Master’s Program in Strategic Communication on May 3. He also received a B.A. in Business Administration from HPU in 2013.

Post-graduation plans: Yusko received a total of five job offers. He accepted a position with LG Fairmont Group, one of the top real estate firms in New York City.

How HPU helped you get there: “HPU’s five-year program has afforded me a smooth transition into a Master’s program and, more importantly, has equipped me with the necessary skills and knowledge to secure a job with an established and upcoming firm in my field. I look forward to utilizing the skills that I have attained at HPU to further my professional career.”

Most impactful moment from HPU: “One of the most impactful memories I have had at High Point University was in a speech given by President Nido Qubein during his senior seminar class. He told us that we could do anything if we put our minds to it. His words gave me a sense of confidence to meet challenges, take risks and to make a difference no matter how big or small. I have taken these words and put them into action as I have successfully completed my master’s program and look to make a difference in the business realm. His teachings have made a profound impression on me and inspired me to pursue my professional aspirations.”
