Heidi Friedrich

If elected undergraduate business association president, Heidi Friedrich said she wants to help students better understand how to be financially independent.

“I want to make sure that every college student who plans to graduate has the tools necessary to not only be successful in their careers but also with managing their finances,” Friedrich said.

The Leawood, Kan. native and Kogod School of Business junior is the only candidate running for undergraduate business association president and served in the same capacity this past year.

If elected, Friederich hopes to continue the CEO Speaker Series, Dish with Dean lunch and financial literacy workshops. The Dish with Dean lunch gives students the opportunity to pose feedback about what they want to see from their Dean while the financial literacy workshops provide students with advice on how to budget for groceries and save money when buying their textbooks, she said.

“We serve as a resource to all students, not only to Kogod students,” Friedrich said.

Friedrich enjoys baking and is currently training for a half marathon.
