- Which Business Certificate Program are you planning to pursue?
I am planning on pursuing the Finance and Banking Certificate.
- Which Business Certificate Program workshop experience was the most impactful and why?
Personally, I think that the most impactful workshop experience for me was the Corporate Finance and Banking workshop. One of the activities that we did was read and analyze a case study, which allowed me a glimpse of what private equity investors have to do as a part of their job. I have not done the Fullbridge program yet. I plan to accomplish this my sophomore year.
- Do you believe your experience with Fullbridge and the workshops will help you be prepared for the business world?
I think that the workshops have helped prepare me. I would say that the alumni who come speak to us about their experiences in the business world provide incredibly valuable insight.
- If a prospective student was visiting Holy Cross and asked you about the Ciocca Center’s certificate programs, what would you tell them?
I would tell them to absolutely get involved in one of the certificate programs. Not only does it increase knowledge of business concepts and jobs, but it also is a great opportunity to connect with Holy Cross alumni.
In addition to the Certificate in Finance & Banking workshops, Emma also attended the 15th annual Women in Business conference held in November 2020. Following this conference, she applied and was accepted to join the WIB planning committee as a freshman. The Ciocca Center is thrilled with Emma’s level of engagement, enthusiasm, and drive. We look forward to working with you over the next few years!
