Students in the School of Business Administration will get the opportunity to interact with top executives from Wall Street who will be returning to their alma mater for a series of informational and networking events at the Dudley H. Davis Center Sept. 12-13.   

The Wall Street Program starts Thursday at 5:30 p.m. with an opening reception for business school students, faculty, panelists and alumni in the Kalkin Hall Lobby. The featured Wall Street Panel, scheduled for Friday at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thomas Chittenden Room, is open to all UVM students interested in listening to alumni talk about their careers after UVM and to answer any questions.

Featured panelists include James Flicker '87, managing director and partner, Greenhill & Co, LLC; James Rourke '92, director and head of Middle Market M&A, Investment Banking, Bank of America Merrill Lynch; Kim Wieland ‘85, managing director and CFO, Allen & Company LLC; Peter Salvatori '05, director, Alternative Asset Advisory, Duff & Phelps; and Laura Polidor '09, assistant vice president, Iinvestment Banking, Credit Suisse.

 “All of the panelists are successful alumni with diverse career paths on Wall Street,” says Sanjay Sharma, dean of the business school. “They will not only talk about their careers after UVM, but will also conduct mock interviews to prepare students for the high bar that the industry sets for recruiting college grads. These are all very busy people who are giving generously of their time because they want to see our students succeed.”

The program finishes on Friday at 1 p.m. in the Davis Center’s Silver Maple Ballroom with a networking event for students interested in exchanging contact information, creating professional relationships and asking more in-depth questions of panelists.
