Connecting with faculty is key

Case Western Reserve University students conversing at a networking luncheon

Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management is large enough to offer a wide range of opportunities; yet small enough that you can form strong relationships.

Take the example of Ethan Glickstein, a rising senior who is majoring in finance.  

During his first semester at Case Western Reserve, Ethan took Corporate Finance with Scott Fine, professor of banking and finance. Between class time and office hours, the two developed a bond.

Fast forward to today: Ethan is the leader of CWRU’s student investment fund, where the faculty advisor is none other than Professor Fine. And Ethan is a teaching assistant in the course where the two first met.

This summer, Ethan will intern at KeyBank, where relationships were key to sealing the deal.

Ethan said, “My friends at other schools don’t have this level of engagement with faculty and alumni.”
