Kayne Investment
Management Fellowship

 

Through the generosity of Ric Kayne, our Founding Board Member, the Fink Center has proudly hosted the Kayne Investment Management Fellowship program since 2011.

The fellowship helps outstanding students committed to completing summer internships in investment management navigate the process. Each fellow is matched with three industry professionals in the field who provide career advice and guidance throughout the summer internship recruiting process. The assignment of three mentors – one that is junior, mid-level and senior in their careers – provides fellows with a unique 360° perspective on the investment management industry. Mentors come from leading firms and are matched based on the fellows’ stated function and geographic location preferences. While the cornerstone of the program is the invaluable mentorship that fellows receive, additional benefits include: a nominal monetary fellowship award, facilitated access to special events with distinguished finance professionals who are friends of the Fink Center and designation as a Fink Fellow.

 

The Selection Process

 

Applications for the 2018-2019 fellowship are currently closed. Applications are made available to first-year MBA students and second-year FEMBA students at the beginning of each school year.

The program is open to all first-year MBA students and second-year FEMBA students with a demonstrated interest and commitment to investment management. We encourage applications both from those with experience in the industry and from those who are considering entering investment management for the first time. Applicants must submit a resume and written essay, and finalists must pass through a panel interview consisting of the program administrators, past fellows, and industry professionals before being selected. Fellows will be chosen based on academic excellence, innovation, creativity, and motivation to succeed in the world of investment management. Fellows are expected to participate in the standard investment management internship recruiting process through the Parker Career Center, in addition to attending special meetings organized by the program. The final choice of internship is left in each fellows' hands, though the program expects that fellows will choose an internship in investment management.

 

Mentorship

 

The Fink Center is deeply grateful to the members of the finance community who share their time, expertise and guidance with our fellows. Without their help, this program would not be possible.
