My name is Jennifer Betz and I am a junior at Longwood University. I am currently working on a bachelor of science, majoring in Integrated Environmental Science with a minor in biology, geography, and outdoor education. My plan after college is to hopefully tag sharks and map their locations for 2 years then go on to work with shoreline repair and storm water management. Eventually I want to get my phD in environmental engineering.

Outside of my education in financial analytics, I have previous work experience in sales and human resource management and have an interest in strategic consulting.

Hi, my name is Shivani Manchanda and I am a senior finance major at The University of Maryland. I am interested in general business but more specifically strategy and operations consulting. I have work experience with the accounting side of business but am now more interested in the strategy side. I am interested in exploring the ways in which businesses can add value for their shareholders and local communities overall. Having travelled around the world, I hope to get into international business/consulting some day.

Jack Franz

As a senior finance major in the Smith Business School at the University of Maryland, I would like to learn about all aspects of the world of business. I have gained personal interest in the emerging fintech industry, specifically blockchain, artificial intelligence, and machine learning and their applications across business settings from a consulting/strategy perspective. I am diligent, passionate, and creative when it comes to my work. My name is Jack Franz, and I’m a junior finance major. I’m interested in a career in finance, but I’d also like to explore other fields. I’m currently taking classes centered around data analytics and consulting to get a better sense of what I want to do after I graduate. On campus, I’m a part of the Global Consulting Fellows program, and I’m the co-founder and treasurer of the CP Student Investment Group.

Austin Weiss

I am an Accounting and Information Systems double major at the University of Maryland. Beyond my specific major interests I am enticed by numbers and the analytical capabilities behind them. Furthermore, I have taken an interest in consulting due to the problem-solving and strategic-planning nature of differing situations, making each problem unique in its respective space.
