Future Made at Jacksonville University

Upon graduation, our Dolphin Grads set out to make an impact on their world. Let's meet one of them now. Quinn has a bachelor's in finance and marketing and an MBA, now she works at Market Cipher an asset management firm. The education students receive here at JU prepares them to not only face the future but to shape it tell us your story.      


Thanks, Alex! Hey everyone, ever since I was young, I've always had two dreams to play college lacrosse and to have a successful career in business, so I was looking for a university that allowed me to excel both academically and


Athletically, when touring Jacksonville University, I fell in love with the beautiful campus and the outstanding Davis College. I knew it was going to be a great fit for my future, my time at JU has shaped me into the person I am today.


 Support from my professors and coaches allowed me to balance the demands of being a Division 1 student-athlete and a full-time student. As a finance student, I was introduced to incredible opportunities like the Dolphin Student Investment Fund, a real investment fund managed by the students. This led me to compete in a prestigious global research challenge hosted by the CFA Institute we won the Florida state championship and went on to compete against over 200 universities worldwide. That experience opened my eyes to the possibilities.


When I graduated my mentor and professor Abdel Missa offered me a position at his asset management firm here in Jacksonville. Now I'm a part of a team that manages millions of dollars’ worth of assets for our clients, but that's just the beginning. We are also building cutting-edge technology that utilizes artificial intelligence and human insights to analyze massive amounts of market data to make market predictions, allowing finance experts to make data-driven investment decisions for their clients.

In other words, it takes the guesswork out of investing! We believe that this technology has the power to transform the finance industry if it wasn't for Jacksonville University, I wouldn't be here today literally shaping the future of the industry that I love. How cool is that! Back to you Alex.




Now that's a success story what an incredible opportunity Quinn! I love seeing how your connection with faculty your degree and that hands-on experience all came together to land that perfect job. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing your story Quinn!
