About the Finance Connection
Founded by Ron Nussbaum, Shawn Alt, and Stephen Tang, the Finance Connection is the first and only finance organization at UCSB committed to educating students about careers on Wall Street and also connecting them with successful alumni. While they were all interested in pursuing a career in investment banking, the founders soon realized that they were facing an uphill battle as UCSB is not recruited by the major investment banks. While they were successful in ultimately landing jobs in the industry, they did so without the help and guidance of the school and had to rely on other available resources that many other schools have. Realizing this, the founders decided to lay the foundation for a successful group on campus and prepare the students for a career in finance.
