Ethan is a double major in Economics and Management and Mathematics. He recently served as President of Albion College’s Investment Club working with E&M Department Chair and Professor Dr. Jon Hooks to help manage the club’s portfolio of securities valued at over $20,000. He is the past President of Delta Sigma Phi social fraternity. Ethan is also an E&M Tutor and a Database Programing Intern for the Albion College IT department. The summer of 2015 he interned at Fifth Third Bank in their Mortgage Banking Division in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“My favorite thing about Albion is the close relationships you can build with your professors. Working side by side with PhDs in their field has been an incredible learning experience for me and something my friends that go to larger public universities could never dream of. The professors here want to see you do well and if you are willing to put forth the effort they will help you grow as a student and person.”
Ethan will be spending summer 2016 interning in Detroit for Ernst & Young on its Technology Advisory team. The internship will expose him to the increasingly innovative technology that plays a massive role in today's business world. His coursework in business and mathematics along with some extra help from alumni helped him land the position at the Big Four accounting firm.
"I was competing against students from a lot of prestigious large universities like Brown, NYU and Michigan for the posititon, but Albion's coursework prepared me for the more technical aspects of the interview and internship, and the network of alumni gave me the extra edge in landing the internship offer. I'm very excited for this opportunity to put what I have learned to the test in a real-world business environment."
