BBA 2005 (Finance)
Portfolio Analytics Specialist, FactSet Research Systems, Chicago, Illinois
It didn't take long for Tippie alumnus Joe Schuhow, BBA05 in finance, to launch his career. Just a few weeks after graduation, Joe started work as a consultant at FactSet Research Systems, Inc., a provider of financial market data and analytic applications for financial professionals. Today he's advanced to the position of fixed income portfolio analytics specialist in the Chicago FactSet office.
"My education from Tippie gave me the financial understanding that was very necessary to work in this industry. On day one I was working with financial analysts and portfolio managers. I was able to speak their language. I was prepared to work with portfolio managers on Wall Street from the start."
Take Joe's Advice: "Use the valuable tools at Tippie and take full advantage of them. Students at the College of Business are very fortunate to learn from great professors and fellow students. Don't take any of it for granted. You only have four years and you need to develop yourself for the first stage in your professional career."
