We believe that the best way to prepare for the demands of the modern workforce is to fully immerse yourself in it. That’s why UB is seamlessly integrated into the city and plugged into its cultural undercurrents. Diversity, redefined.
That’s what attracted Kourtney Johnson, B.S. ’15, to UB.
“The location, the diversity, and the amenities – I immediately loved everything about the University.”
Johnson transferred to UB to study entrepreneurship. Here, the faculty in the program connected Johnson with her greatest potential. “Upon graduating, I had the tools to start my own business, which I did.”
Johnson started Nation Fragrances, a unisex fragrance retailer consisting of essential oils, signature sprays, handmade chapsticks, and scented candles.
