Recipient of Alumni Association scholarship finds welcoming UM community
In describing his own personal achievements, Martín Glikman is quick to acknowledge the support of others: his parents for encouraging him to follow his passions, his friends for keeping him grounded, his high school teachers for preparing him for post-secondary. Now, the Asper School of Business student proudly includes UM’s Alumni Association among his circle of influential supporters.
Glikman is the recent recipient of the Alumni Association’s Entrance Scholarship, awarded to full-time students beginning their first year of studies.
Before graduating from Gray Academy, where he was Student Council President and junior basketball coach, Glikman wrote for a sports blog while he considered a career in journalism. Then a chance encounter with economics changed his mind.
“I took a statistics class in grade 12 with my all-time favourite teacher and that pointed me in the direction of business,” Glikman explains. “Going to Asper was kind of like a no-brainer, really. It just seemed like the best option.”
