Paul Kosinski is a 21-year-old senior from Staten Island, NY. He’s majoring in Finance and minoring in Economics. He joined the Pforzheimer Honors College as a first-year student in the fall of 2003. He chose Pace because of its Lubin School of Business and the great reputation that comes with it. He also chose Pace because of the tennis coach.
“I am entering into my last semester of eligibility,” Paul says about playing tennis. He is currently the captain of the men’s team. He had a successful season last year, the men’s team winning seven of their nine matches. At the end of the semester, Paul was named to the all conference team at first singles and second doubles. He’s looking forward to this semester of playing. “This season we have a solid group of men who have the potential of doing well and a chance to make the NCAA tournament in April,” he says.
When not playing tennis, Paul, who describes himself as ambitious, eccentric, and competitive, is active being the President of the Finance Society and a brother of Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. Last semester, he took Finance 358, a finance field-study course. The entire class visited Paris and London for a week at the end of May. While he was there, Paul got to visit world-renowned financial institutions and multinational corporations such as Societé Generale, IBM, and Bank of England.
Paul plans to graduate this May. “I am going to graduate school in Germany,” he says of his plans after graduation. He has applied for a Fullbright Award to help with his studies. “If I receive the award, I will study Quantitative Economics at Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt. Otherwise, I will be participating in a pilot one-for-one student exchange with Mannheim University where I would look to take classes towards an MBA.”
