    MS in Finance, Class of 2016

    Analyst
    Panorama Holdings LLC

    "I worked with the Simon Venture Fund for three quarters on two different projects. I was able to visit the client's headquarters, talk to the CEO face-to-face, prepare the pitch, and present it on a conference call with the board members. It was really beneficial to us, especially those of us without much work experience before coming to Simon."
