Ten economics and business students and two professors traveled to New York City recently, visiting several locations in the nation's financial capital, such as the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve.
"It was really informative for the students," said Jennifer Wells Kelber, assistant professor. "It's one thing for the students to sit and listen to either me or Professor Miller in lecture and another for them to go out and see the application of what they have been learning."
Students also had the opportunity to network with Saint Anselm alumni working in Manhattan's Financial District. Several are employed in large firms such as Bloomberg and Scotia Capital, giving the students insight into both the hiring process and the inner workings of some of the most well-known finance companies in the nation.
Financial analyst Kevin Tynan '90 participated in the meet-and-greet between students and alumni, and shared his experience working with Bloomberg. Paul Stamoulis '93, at Scotia Capital, provided advice on investment banking. Stamoulis later gave the students a tour of the trading rooms.
For Dao Le '15, connecting with alumni was a highlight. "There were eight or nine alumni there who gave us insight to the real-world applications of what I have been studying for the last few years," he said.
