Career Panels

In late 2014, Linde Institute Professor of Finance Richard Roll invited three Caltech alumni to speak with undergraduates about how they leveraged their science and engineering degrees into successful careers in finance. Read about that first panel here.

These panels continue with additional alumni coming to campus to speak with students about careers in finance, management consulting, and entrepreneurship. Faculty in The Ronald and Maxine Linde Institute of Economic and Management Sciences organize these events in partnership with Caltech’s Career Development Center. In addition to having an opportunity to listen to alumni speak about their own career paths, students can schedule one-on-one interviews with the participating alumni on the same day as the panel discussions.

These panels are intended for Caltech students and therefore are only advertised internally. This page will be updated following each panel to post information on the participating panelists.
