Bayarmaa Enkhtur (MSF’20) was studying Economics at Colorado College when she realized that investment banking was the right career for her. However, since it was the end of her senior year, she knew that she needed a graduate degree and more experience to enter this field and get a job in banking.

“I needed to get another advanced degree at a target top school to not only brush up on my accounting and finance skills, but also to gain access to a more extensive alumni network. And the Vandy program was just perfect for that,” Enkhtur said.

Before entering the MSF program, Enkhtur worked as an investment banking intern at WestPark Capital, Inc. and honed her networking skills. Thanks to her hard work, she was offered a job in the Global Investment Banking Division at Bank of America Securities in New York City early in the recruiting season.

“I think the most important thing was starting (recruitment) early. I think the MSF program puts an emphasis on that,” she said. “They want you to be prepared before you set foot on campus. And I think that’s what separates (this) program from all the other programs and makes it really successful with employment.”
