Thomas Mullooly (GSB '11)
Within a few weeks of his Fordham graduation, Thomas Mullooly (GSB '11) was starting each workday at his desk at Credit Suisse.
A native of Bergen County, New Jersey, and a graduate of Don Bosco Prep, Thomas earned his B.S. in business administration from Gabelli in May 2011. He chose a dual concentration in finance and accounting and a minor in economics, earning election to the Beta Alpha Psi honor society, to Gabelli's elite 30-member Finance Scholars group, and to Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international economics honor society.
One of the Gabelli courses that shaped Thomas's career path was the Student Managed Investment Fund, which invests more than $1 million of Fordham University's actual endowment. Thomas served as the fund's co-managing director after being promoted from his post as fixed income and FX analyst. Meanwhile, Thomas racked up serious work experience: a position at a boutique ship brokerage, an accounting internship with the New York Yacht Club, an internship with Merrill Lynch and a summer analyst position at Credit Suisse.
The last one led to a permanent job. In August before his senior year, Thomas received a full-time offer from Credit Suisse to join its rotational analyst program after graduation. Now working at the company's offices overlooking Madison Square Park, he hopes to complete the program at the top of the class and permanently join Credit Suisse’s fixed income sales and trading division.
Thomas is a loyal alumnus of Fordham, where he was very involved in business student life. As an undergraduate, he studied abroad for a summer in Gabelli's London program, traveled with a group of Gabelli students to Washington, D.C., for the Doscas Symposium on the financial crisis, and took part in the G.A.M.E. Conference at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.
