Hi all! My name is Marty Bacik and I am a junior double majoring in Business Information Systems and Finance. I am excited to be traveling to Ireland for the first time and Europe for the second time!
I grew up in Pittsburgh and have lived here my whole life. My freshman year I attended SUNY Geneseo in Rochester NY and then I realized I missed Pittsburgh too much so I came back here! I am a swimmer and swam D3 while I was at Geneseo and currently swim for Pitt Club.
Professionally, I interned with Primanti Brothers after my freshman year, PNC after my sophomore year, will be a business analyst for HM Health Solutions this summer, and am currently a specialist at Apple.
The reason I was interested in the Ireland program specifically is the focus on technology and innovation. I will be working for a tech company this summer and am also very interested in entrepreneurship and have gone through Pitt’s Blast Furnace.
After graduation I would love to work for a tech company like Apple and Google, so this trip will be a great way for me to experience that. I am very excited for the trip so stay posted for more blogs and pictures!
