The Fall 2012 semester of the Alumni Insider’s View…Program
(AIV) will provide students even more opportunities to get a true
behind-the-scenes look at today’s most exciting professions.
In addition to the popular AIV…U.S. Capital program in Washington,
DC and the AIV…Day on Wall Street program, students will be able to
take advantage of a wealth of new on-site trips that will give them
an up-close-and-personal look at the professional world.
“It’s been exciting to watch our Alumni Insider’s View…Program grow
each and every year,” said Victor Ramos ’91CBA, ’93MBA, Associate
Vice President in the Division of Institutional Advancement and
Interim Director of Alumni Relations. “For years now, our alumni
have been incredibly generous of their time, coming back to campus
to speak with our students about becoming a successful
professional. Now, with an increasing amount of on-site visits,
more and more students will get a firsthand perspective into what
it’s like to work in their desired industry.”
Students in St. John’s Peter J. Tobin College of Business will have
the opportunity to visit KPMG and BDO USA, LLP – two of the top
global networks of professional firms. Additional programs include
a visit to AXA Financial, a leading financial and wealth management
company, and BlackRock, the world's largest asset management
Meanwhile, students of all majors will be able to take advantage of
AIV at NBC Studios, Madison Square Garden, MTV/Viacom and the
Offices of Sesame Street, among others.
“Our students truly enjoy these on-site visits,” Ramos added.
“They’re once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, and the connections
students make can often lead to internships. Simply put, these are
wonderful programs, and I can’t thank our alumni and these
corporations enough for their generosity.”
As in years past, there will also be a host of on-campus
AIV…Programs, including the Polished and Professional Series.
Co-sponsored by the Career Center, these events bring alumni
speakers to campus to share their insight on topics such as
business etiquette, resume building and how to ace your job
