More than 30 School of Business undergraduate and MBA students had the opportunity to visit New York City in October to learn firsthand about the ins and outs of business in the Big Apple.
As a part of the school’s undergraduate Bermont/Carlin Scholars Program, 14 undergraduate finance students had the opportunity to meet with executives at major investment banks such as Morgan Stanley and other leading New York firms, as well as tour and walk the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
“The Bermont/Carlin Scholars trip granted us a personal experience that I wouldn't have received otherwise,” said Hannah Ringel, who was among the scholars. “What we learned firsthand about the New York financial industry will undoubtedly provide us with a competitive advantage in the job market.”
