Dolan students interested in interning or working for financial services firms had the chance to network with professionals from 16 companies.

Encouraging this connectivity between alumni in the industry and the current student body will hopefully help to increase the number of internship and post-graduate opportunities available to students in the years to come.

— UBS Investment Bank Director Doug Freeman '08

Last April Fairfield Dolan hosted the Stags on Wall Street event at the Dolan Event Hall. The event was designed to give alumni from the Wall Street community the opportunity to have informal conversations with students who are interested in interning or working for financial services firms. Each visiting firm had their own table where they welcomed students to speak about opportunities at their companies.

“This event is a big step in building upon Fairfield's already strong presence in financial services,” said Doug Freeman '08, a UBS Investment Bank director. “Encouraging this connectivity between alumni in the industry and the current student body will hopefully help to increase the number of internship and post-graduate opportunities available to students in the years to come.”

Fairfield Dolan welcomed more than 40 alumni from the following companies at the event: Bank of America, BlackRock, Blackstone, BNP/Paribas, BNY Mellon, Citibank, Deutsche Bank, Franklin Templeton, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Nexseer Capital, SMBC-NIKKO, TD Securities, Wells Fargo, and UBS. Fairfield's strong alumni network has been recognized by the Princeton Review and is ranked #14 for Best Alumni Network (2020).

“Fairfield has an amazing network of alumni who are successful across various sectors of the financial services industry,” said Institutional FX sales analyst at J.P. Morgan Alexandra Cordero ’19. “Stags on Wall Street is an exciting event that will help prepare students for a career on Wall Street by giving them the opportunity to engage with, ask questions to, and network with alumni. It is great to see the work that John Hottinger and others on campus are doing to engage and prepare the next set of industry leaders coming out of Fairfield!”

With more than 150 students in attendance, both alumni and students found the event to be a successful networking opportunity.

“With so many companies and alumni present it was a huge success for me personally!” said Ethan Waskiel ’24, economics and finance double major. ”I was able to spend quality time with representatives from several large companies and their guidance and mentorship was invaluable.”
