During the spring semester, 15 students in Ithaca College’s School of Business had a chance to connect with alumni and learn more about their careers during the “Meet the Firms” trip to New York City.
Students were given the opportunity to meet with alumni and discuss the work they do for their companies, which included the Maven Clinic, the Times Square Alliance, Bloomberg L.P., and Consolidated Flooring.
“This trip is a great way for students to see companies up close and personal, and a way for alumni to get involved with students,” said instructor of management Ed Catto, who, along with assistant professor of finance Xinxin Li and assistant professor of finance and international business Chee Ng, supervised the trip, which was being held for the first time since 2019.
Business administration major Denielle Newman ’22 was excited to have the opportunity to learn about the different career paths firsthand.
“Being a senior, I really wanted to take the opportunity,” she said. “The companies were very interesting to me.”
