Alumni Engagement Opportunities

Alumni Opportunities

A key tenet of the mission of the Boehly Center for Excellence in Finance is to build strong connections between alumni and current William & Mary students. The Boehly Center has invited over two hundred W&M Alumni working in finance to engage with undergraduate students through programming such as From DoG Street to Wall Street, Officers’ Council, the Singapore & Hong Kong Summer Study Abroad program, networking events across the globe, certificate courses and more.

Mentor Match Program

The Mentor Match Program was originally created by the Howard J. Busbee Finance Academy to provide a way for their members to be matched with alumni mentors. The Boehly Center has expanded this program to include all students interested in the financial services industry and to provide them a mentor from their particular area of interest. Students can use the mentors as a resource to gain insight into their respective industries, companies, positions, career preparations, and anything else related to their professional experience.

Officers’ Council

The Officers’ Council was established in 2014 to engage the young alumni who served as officers in any of the five Center-sponsored clubs since their founding, as well as a small number of alumni who are personally invited to join based on their extraordinary contributions to the Boehly Center and the College. This group meets annually to review Center progress over the past year and offer input on future initiatives.
