MS in Finance, Class of 2011

Kevin Coleman majored in finance as an undergrad and was concerned there was going to be overlap at Simon, but his fears were unfounded. "I was pleasantly surprised,” he says. “The curriculum was fast paced and challenging. I gained a much more in-depth and applicable finance knowledge through the MS program at Simon." 

The San Diego native, who had internships at LPL Financial, Trovena Wealth Management, and MetLife, came east for graduate school because he realized in an increasingly competitive industry it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd. "My Simon education provided me with the knowledge and confidence to pursue any career in the finance field," he says. "I feel that getting a master’s degree from the highly regarded Simon program put me ahead of the pack in the highly competitive field."

Kevin says the quantitative nature and hands-on approach of the Simon program is its greatest asset. He also found great value outside of the classroom by participating in various activities, including the Financial Management Association, Market TIMER Club, Simon Golf Club, and Simon Meliora Fund.   

"The Meliora Fund provided a great platform for a career in investment management," Kevin says. "It allows members to actively participate in the investment process of part of the school’s endowment."

"One of the greatest strengths of the Simon Business School is the actively involved alumni base. Simon alumni have achieved a high level of success in their careers and are always willing to provide great insight to their success and lend a helping hand to students."
