Class of: 2017
While at Hopkins, I was able to take the Seminar in Financial Literacy over my sophomore intersession. This course was the most influential experience I had, and truly guided me to where I am today. Not only did the course teach me the various intricacies, jargon, and helpful tips for navigating the Wall Street interview process, it also connected me with myriad alumni who were eager to pull along a fellow Jay to their respective firms.
It was so unique in that it bridged typical academia with a modern practical tool set that that positioned students to land the top internships (as well as full-time offers) in the industry. My role as a technology investment banking analyst at J.P. Morgan stemmed directly from the connections I was able to leverage from this very course. This course is an absolute must for any Hopkins students looking to enter the world of finance!
