Mauricio Tobon takes pride in excelling. He strives for excellence in everything he does. This is the mindset he took to Brown Mackie College — Miami. Class by class, Mauricio gave 110% in his quest for knowledge. “The instructors took notice,” he says. “They went out of their way to find out what my plans were and how I should go about achieving them.”
With an eye toward working successfully in the corporate world, Mauricio studied Accounting Technology. “I took every class seriously. No matter what they showed me, I made sure I learned it. In the corporate world, the more you know the more of an asset you become for the company,” he says. It is no surprise he showed up on the Dean’s list several times during his studies.
Graduation came in 2009 for Mauricio. Armed with an Associate of Science degree in Accounting Technology, he accepted a position as accounting clerk at Braman Motors in Miami, Florida. In his career, Mauricio puts forth the same full effort as he did in the classroom. He enjoys the corporate atmosphere, where is responsible for entering all new car inventory into the database, and reconciling inventory several times a month.
Additionally, he collects all manufacturer rebates the dealership is eligible to receive, converts the on-site gas station data into a spreadsheet, and assists the controller with anything he might need. “There are numerous departments at the facility, and I have built enough of a reputation that people in every department know they can count on me to complete any task they may need help with,” he says.
Mauricio counsels students to “ask your instructors all the questions you can think of regarding your field of study or life in the workforce. They don’t just teach the syllabus at Brown Mackie College — Miami. They have a lot of knowledge about real life in the corporate world.”
He found himself well prepared to enter the business world, knowing exactly what would be expected from him in a corporate setting. “Every day, I just try to learn as much as I can,” Mauricio says. “This can help me move up in the company or move on to bigger and better opportunities.”
