Christopher Pascoe

Although he started college as a finance and economics major, Christopher formed a passion for his advanced math courses and found that applied mathematics gave him the tools he needs for a future career.

Christopher participated in a summer internship with Exelon Nuclear, where he worked as a financial analyst. His applied mathematics major was a hot topic during his interview with Exelon recruiters.

“They were impressed because they said it exemplifies the ability to use and apply analytic thinking.”

Christopher plans to pursue a master’s degree in mathematical finance. He hopes to work in the wealth management industry, where he can apply the experience he gained at Exelon and the skills he learned as an applied mathematics major.
