The FMI Friends is a group of 120 people, primarily MSU alumni who have earned their degree in the last 10+ years. These young professionals regularly interact with the scholars, offering insights on career paths, introducing them to their colleagues, giving them mock interviews, hosting groups during road shows, organizing activities during summer internships, etc.

With the leadership of board member Chrissy Lamont (BA, Finance,’03), the Friends group has regional leaders called “ambassadors.” Serving in this capacity are Christopher Brigham (Boston; BA, Finance,’03), Adam Hinman (New York; BA, Accounting,’05), Laura Spence DeAngelis (Atlanta; BA, Finance,’03), and Eric Hassberger (Chicago; BA, Finance,’04). If you would like to affiliate with this network, contact the nearest ambassador or the institute for more information.
