Ten students and two professors departed campus for New York City, bound to visit iconic financial services sites including JP Morgan and the New York Stock Exchange. The group consisted of senior finance students, assistant professor Jennifer Kelber '01, and assistant professor Luke Miller.
Students visited JP Morgan and sat in on a U.S. equity call. They also stopped at Bloomberg, the New York Stock Exchange, and Scotiabank. Students met with alumni during these visits and were shown the ins and outs of the financial industry during location tours.
At Bloomberg, Kevin Tynan '90 introduced students to the company. There the students also watched a taping of a segment that featured Tynan as he discussed the automotive industry.
"It was really cool to see how well our alumni are doing," says Sara Marden '15. "They were all very willing to help us and give us advice."
"The trip showed me different sides of finance and economics that now I would like to pursue," says Mackenzie Douglas '15.
Students were also able to network with over 40 alumni at the Anselmian Executive Forum held at the Union League Club and hosted by Michael McGoldrick '86. At the event, associate professor John Romps was recognized for his 46 years of service to Saint Anselm College. Kelber, an alumna from the class of 2001, introduced Romps and talked about the impact Romps had on her life, and the privilege of working alongside her mentor these last four years. Romps will retire this May.
"Overall, the whole trip was great for networking and showing what it was like to live and work in NYC," says Mackenzie Douglas '15. "I would love to move down there after I graduate because of the trip."
