Better Directed, Better Connected


Haas Builds Up Finance, Marketing

Investment banking teach-ins and a new CMO speaker series course are two initiatives resulting from two new roles at Haas: The Finance and Marketing areas now have executive directors in place to oversee strategic programs. In addition to the positive impact on the student experience from such new programs, Finance and Marketing are now able to market more and conduct greater outreach to alumni and the business community, as well as expand partnerships with Career Services and Admissions.

Fulfilling these roles are Bill Rindfuss for Finance and Marjorie DeGraca for Marketing. Rindfuss came from a corporate finance career at JPMorgan and DeGraca added to her responsibilities as executive director of Evening & Weekend MBA Admissions. DeGraca is managing the launch of the new spring 2011 course, Chief Marketing Officer Insight Series. Rindfuss helped prepare students for investment banking internship interviews through a new series of teach-ins this past fall. This semester he is working with the finance faculty on the curriculum's strategic direction.
