Jason M. Adams: The chance to attend classes and seminars led by world-renowned professors made my mathematical training at UAB a very rewarding and memorable experience. The Advanced Calculus sequence bears particular mention. It is unlike any other class I have taken; there is a special dynamic between students that develops over the course. Even if I had not pursued graduate studies, I learned a way toexpress and defend my ideas that has been invaluable.

I have no doubt that having a Masters in mathematics was a factor in landing the interviews I was invited to after graduation. And it certainly has made me more effective in my role developing the next
generation of secure payments products.
