MBA Students Visit Top Recruiters in New York

  

    Neeley MBA students traveled to New York City to meet with representatives from some of the top companies in the New York area. Graduate Career Services coordinates the trip each year to allow MBAs in the Educational Investment Fund program to interact with alumni and discuss the job market with potential employers.

Several Neeley alumni welcomed the students and showed them around their New York offices. Vice Chairman and President of Global Private Client Group Bob McCann (MBA'82) hosted the students for lunch at Merrill Lynch. Lori Lancaster (BBA'91) and Andrew Flahive (BBA'04) welcomed them at Goldman Sachs, and Ryan Parish (BBA'00) gave them a tour of Sawaya Segalas Investment Bankers.

Bloomberg and BlackRock hosted the students for the third year in a row. The group also visited Sirius Satellite and, thanks to TCU CIO Jim Hille (MBA '92), Maverick Capital.

Hosted by Fidelity Investments, the students visited the floor the of New York Stock Exchange and had lunch in the Exchange Club. Special thanks to Brian O'Regan, Regional Vice President with Fidelity and member of Neeley's International Board of Visitors, for arranging the tour and lunch.

"The New York trip is a very important part of the Neeley MBA student experience because it is so personal," said Shirley Rasberry, director of Graduate Career Services. "The students get face-time with top employers. They get to experience first-hand the different firms' corporate culture. They talk with alumni who have been where they are now and they see their success. And it also gives recruiters and managers at these firms the chance to meet our students in person. Nothing can replace that experience."
