Utah State University
Dakota Clark hails from the Utah side of Bear Lake and will be graduating with a Master of Accounting degree in May of 2021. Completed at Utah State, Dakota graduated summa cum laude with undergraduate degrees in accounting, marketing, and business administration (which was paired with a human-resource management minor). A highlight of his academic career, Dakota has had the distinct pleasure to work as a teacher’s assistant for three professors, a graduate assistant for another, and serve as a supplemental instructor.
Throughout his time in school, Dakota worked a number of full-time jobs in various fields from cellphone sales to his current job of installing car stereos and other aftermarket electronics. He has interned for the past three springs doing public taxes for a local firm, but is still currently exploring career options and has yet to accept any full time offers. He and his wife are currently expecting their second child and are enjoying the excitement of graduation and other future adventures.
Dakota would like to express his gratitude for all of the staff that have helped him on his journey. Contributions from professors, advisors, and various others will forever have an impact on his life and the person he has become.
