    "Lubin has given me tremendous opportunities and career exposure that I am sure I could not have gotten anywhere else. Lubin’s excellent strategic location, in the core of the financial capital of the world, and the great finance program it offers, has helped me succeed both in my classes and in the workplace. I have accomplished my dream of landing an investment banking internship position in a "bulge bracket” bank that will potentially lead to a full-time offer. Lubin offers unique opportunities combined with an outstanding learning experience.”

"My most impactful experience at Pace was through the Lubin Leaders program, as it gave me the opportunity to create an undergraduate thesis. Thereafter, my thesis served as a starting point for an article that Dr. Kadiyala and I collaborated on, resulting in a published article which included my name. This specifically allowed me to separate myself from the rest of those entering a very competitive and unstable job market in 2009."
