Dier Pulatov

UWEC provides once-in-a-lifetime opportunities

Dier Pulatov was expecting big things when he left his home in Uzbekistan to study at UW-Eau Claire. Still, he never imagined that meeting the CEO of Apple, completing an internship with Driehaus Capital Management in Chicago or giving a presentation to one of the top 25 investors of the 20th century would be part of his college experience.

Now a business finance and statistics and applied mathematics grad, Dier finds himself ready for what’s next, crediting his professors — and these experiences — with helping him get there. 

“I feel welcome and wanted at UWEC,” Dier said. "I cannot imagine a better place to obtain a high-quality education and such well-rounded experiences. Coming here turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made.”
