Sixteen students, along with two faculty members, traveledto New York City earlier this summer for three days of career exploration visits with finance firms. The ten visits included large firms such as Goldman Sachs, KPMG, and Bloomberg as well as S&P, Time Inc, and JetBlue. The students also took part in an event that brought together alumni in the area. Grant Brinkerhoff, a sophomore Finance student, stated that “this was such an amazing experience to learn more about the different jobs in the financial field. It was an eye-opening experience seeing the different aspects of finance and corporations that I liked and did not like. Because of this trip I know which classes I want to take to finish my major. I am grateful for all of the alumni that took time out of their busy schedule to meet with us, it really has changed what I want to do with the rest of my life.” Senior Finance major Riley Nielson said that “I got to NYC with tons of questions about my future goals and plans. I left with all of my questions answered. It definitely was a life changing experience.”
