Join GSAS Futures for an intimate discussion with Donna Smolens, GSAS ’81, on strategies for career transition and advancement in corporate sector industries. Smolens, a senior advisor at Insight Venture Partners, will describe her professional journey as she made the most of a master’s degree she earned from Fordham’s Department of Economics—an experience that afforded her the opportunity to receive close mentorship, among a range of other opportunities and resources—to pursue a high-powered career in corporate finance.

Smolens will also advise students on particular areas where they should focus on acquiring knowledge and skill development based on industry trends. A Q&A session following the discussion will leave ample time for students to dialogue with Smolens as they reflect on their own goals and priorities.
