DiMenna, an innovator in the finance and investments industry, visited Dolan School students to share valuable insights.

Joseph DiMenna '80 came back to campus on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, to share his vast expertise on finance and investments with Charles F. Dolan School of Business students. During his visit, he toured campus and dropped by the DiMenna-Nyselius Library on the 20th anniversary of its reopening and renaming in honor of DiMenna’s generous support of the facility's renovation and expansion.  

“Mr. DiMenna met with student leaders, including members of Student Managed Investment Fund, and shared his recipe for success in the world of finance,” said Katsiaryna Bardos, PhD, chair and associate professor of finance at the Dolan School. “He discussed that one has to like the learning aspect of investing and have passion for ideas and intellectual curiosity. One has to recognize that investing is an art.” Students shared with Dr. Bardos that they found the meeting with DiMenna very inspiring and insightful. “It was gratifying to hear that Mr. DiMenna believes that a liberal arts education — like the one Fairfield University delivers — prepares better investors.”

DiMenna, who received a BS in finance from the Dolan School, is the managing director of Zweig-DiMenna Associates, a global investment management firm, where he has been a portfolio manager since he co-founded Zweig-DiMenna Partners with Martin Zweig in 1984.
