2011 Alumni in Financial Services Event
November 16, 2011
On Thursday, November 10, 2011, nearly 70 alumni and students from Cooper Union’s engineering, art and architecture schools gathered for the annual alumni in financial services event. Each year, this popular event strengthens the community on campus by providing invaluable networking opportunities for students and helping alumni reconnect with the college.
The theme of this year’s event was how Cooper prepares students for success in today’s uncertain world. Three alumni gave remarks. President Jamshed Bharucha also offered his perspective, observing that “Cooper’s alumni embody the qualities of Peter Cooper, who was a visionary entrepreneur dedicated to elevating people in need. Our alumni in finance are leaders who create wealth and prosperity and understand their responsibility to help those who are less fortunate.”
