HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 1, 2012 – Tyler Yusko, a rising senior at High Point University, is grabbing the bull by the horns, so to speak, as a financial adviser intern at Merrill Lynch in Southampton, N.Y. this summer.
A business administration major with a focus in marketing and finance, Yusko is experiencing the financial market through interactions with advisers and corporate meetings by setting up conferences with guest speakers to help potential clients have a better understanding of long term insurance and its benefits over time.
Yusko has found the internship to be a fascinating look into the professional side of financial advising that he never would have been prepared for without his HPU coursework.
“My coursework and experienced professors at HPU have given me the solid background of knowledge needed to work in a high impact business such as Merrill Lynch,” Yusko says. “With the knowledge and skills gained at HPU, I was able to easily transition into this fast-paced financial world.”
Yusko plans on continuing his education in the fifth year master’s program at HPU in strategic communication.
