The finance and economics major had already accepted a full-time position as an analyst in investment banking in the public finance group at Wells Fargo in New York City.

How do CWRU business students snag impressive jobs so early? 

For Kenya, and so many others, it’s all thanks to the opportunities they find at CWRU for career development and real-world experience. 

Kenya has taken advantage of opportunities to grow as a leader at CWRU. She’s president of CWRU’s Undergraduate Diversity Collaborative, which promotes the values of diversity and inclusion on campus. She also heads a group that manages and grows a portion of the CWRU endowment through the Weatherhead Fund

And she grew her network as a participant on CWRU’s Wall Street Trek, where she met alumni working in some of the nation’s most recognizable financial institutions. 

Between her campus involvements and her coursework that prepared her for real-world business, Kenya was well-prepared to stand out during her internship this summer at Wells Fargo … and to head back to campus with a job offer in hand.

Kenya is well on her way to being a leader in the business world. And you will be, too.
