How Did Beacom Prepare Me For Success?

I was able to join the student investment group, Coyote Capital Management (CCM), which allowed me to be involved in finance and portfolio management before moving into the work force. This initial training provided me a basis to be successful in my internship and career. Beacom also provided me extensive classroom training in the world of finance and how it is applied outside of college. 

Internships:

Home Federal Bank. My internship turned into a full time position after graduation. I was able to learn the fundamentals of portfolio management with their investment committee while interning at the bank. This included asset allocation, economics, and proper due diligence requirements. This mentoring allowed me to hit the ground running when the internship turned into a full time career.      

Other Thoughts?

Beacom allowed me to take trips to meet Warren Buffett and attend conferences in Dayton and NYC.  All of these experiences were critical in developing my understanding of business and finance as a career.
