Alexandra Felfle ’10 builds a pipeline for Conn finance grads
A double major in economics and international relations at Conn, Alexandra Felfle was hired as an analyst in Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group’s (MUFG) Latin America corporate investment banking division and was quickly promoted to associate. Since she joined the bank, it has become the leading lender in Latin America, and—in terms of assets—one of the five largest banks in the world.
When a new internship program launched at MUFG, Felfle made it her mission to include Conn as a target school, and now is working to expand the Conn alumni network within the bank.
Since the program’s inception in 2016, Conn alumni have secured internships and employment at MUFG — consistently beating out candidates from the world’s most prestigious universities.
Felfle cites Conn students’ understanding of cultural nuance and ability to view problems from multiple perspectives as instrumental to success in a multinational bank.
In other words, Conn students are people capable of bringing multi-disciplinary perspectives to the workplace. In other words, they defy boundaries.
While the MUFG pipeline is firmly in place, Felfle is now the VP of Global Corporate Banking at JP Morgan Chase, opening up even more opportunities for Conn students.
