Favorite Philadelphia Activity: Eating outside at Parc on Rittenhouse Park has to be the best food experience ever.  The combination of people watching and the best baguettes I’ve had outside of France is just phenomenal.

Why did you choose the Villanova MSF: I wanted a program that would balance academics with hands-on experience.  The combination of us learning about different theories and frameworks and applying them to the student-managed fund sounds like a great learning process.  The different simulations and projects are also designed to give students exposure to financial markets.
