Marc Colon: Industrials & Materials Sector Leader
Marc is a senior and the Industrials & Materials Sector Leader. As a leader in SMIP you are given the chance to not only lead a group of 4-6 students and teach them what you know about the stock market, but also use your public speaking skills for sector updates and technical skills for analysis on companies. “SMIP gives students the ability to manage a large fund of money at a collegiate level. My advice to underclassmen interested in finance and the stock market would be to get some good reading done regarding finance topics that are most relevant to them.” Marc is graduating in May 2016 and is interested in a career in wealth management.
To get to know more about Marc, the Industrials & Materials Sector, and SMIP join us for our weekly meeting in room 109 on Mondays at 5pm.
Jess Nicholson: Healthcare Sector Leader
Jess is a senior and our Healthcare Sector Leader. When she enrolled in IUP she started out as a nursing major but changed her mind when she felt that the finance world better suited her personality and skill set. “I like that SMIP gives me real world experience in investing,” she said, “Even though underclassman don’t have finance classes yet they can still learn a lot from upperclassmen which will make them better off when they finally do take those classes.” She picked to be a part of the healthcare sector because she has five years of experience working in a pharmacy. “I feel that I’ve gained a better understanding of my job since becoming a member of the healthcare sector.” Jess graduates in May 2016 and has plans to go on to graduate school.
