Adam Berg, is a Finance major. He says he chose the major because, “the financial world is so diverse and rapidly changes everyday.” He’s also always been interested in the stock market. Knowing that business was definitely his field of interest, Adam chose Pace because of the reputation of the Lubin School of Business, its location, and its small size.
Adam has really taken the time to get involved in the Lubin community. He is currently the Secretary for the Accounting Society. He says, “The Accounting Society is a great way for all business majors to network with some of the countries largest accounting firms.” As Secretary, Adam is actually responsible for contacting the firms and organizing a schedule for each semester. Adam notes, “The personal relationships I build with these recruiters are important in giving me that extra edge over everyone else.”
Aside from business studies, Adam is a sports fanatic. He loves baseball and basketball. The New York Mets and the New York Knicks are his favorite teams. Adam is not just a spectator, though; you can find him keeping up with his own fitness at the gym five times a week.
Adam is also a brother of Alpha Phi Delta national fraternity. He says that pledging was one of the best experiences of his life, explaining, “The bond you build with your pledge brothers is unlike anything you can imagine.” You can often see him sporting his letters on campus.
After graduation, Adam plans to receive his MBA in Financial Management and go on to work for a large investment firm, possibly as a stock broker. He mentions that nothing is guaranteed though, because there are so many available options. He notes, “Life offers us with so many opportunities every day, there’s no telling which one will present itself to me at the perfect time.”
Adam firmly believes in the importance of forming connections with others. He will never miss a chance to meet new people or get know individuals on a deeper level. To his fellow schoolmates, Adam advises, “The relationships you build in college will stay with you longer than you think, so never take any information you receive, or any person you meet, for granted.” He also recommends getting an internship, noting that it will help students to gain valuable experience to put them ahead of their competition.
