That’s the mission of the Gabelli School’s Alumni/Student Supper Club.
Back for its third year, the Supper Club matches one Fordham graduate with a very small group of students — five or six — for networking dinners at restaurants in Manhattan and on Arthur Avenue. The host will remember you. You will remember your host.
All of which makes for a great career connection.
We recommend you apply for Supper Clubs when the host works in your career field of interest. Students are chosen based on the strength of their application and are notified by e-mail if they have been awarded a seat.
The first one for fall 2013 is in finance, with Steve McGuinness (GSB ’82, GBA ’91), senior vice president, Global.
Here is a brief biography of the host:
Steve McGuinness is senior vice president at Global. From 2009 to 2011, Mr. McGuinness was co-COO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management ($850B in AUM) where he co-managed the day-to-day operations and ran a 350-person institutional sales team.
