New York City-area alumni came out in force in mid-October, when Dean Barbara E. Kahn, other School Administrators, faculty from the Department of Finance, and nearly 40 graduate and undergraduate students arrived for four days of meetings, presentations and special events. Two of those events were hosted by School alumni who have achieved high levels of financial career success with major companies.
On Tuesday, October 14, a mentoring event was held in the offices of UBS. Al Marsicano (BBA ’76), senior vice president-investments, was the host. Nearly two dozen of the School’s recent graduates who have begun their financial careers in New York — including two alumni who also work at UBS — met with the visiting students to offer advice and answer questions about everything from work and life in the Big Apple to the transition from classroom to office.
Another reception, held on Wednesday, October 15, in the studios of CBS drew dozens of alumni from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Fred Reynolds (BBA ’72), executive vice president and CFO of CBS Corporation, was the host. At each of these events, Dean Kahn took the podium for a short time to explain her strategy for taking the School to the next level, and how her program of alumni outreach benefits the School, its students and, ultimately, the alumni themselves.
