NYSE Vets from Fordham Speak On VAP Program

“The NYSE VAP has reinforced my decision to go into accounting and financial services,” Aguilar said. “I’ve realized there are many opportunities available within the industry—it all depends on how you decide to apply your skills.”

In an article for Fordham University’s ‘Fordham Notes’ news blog, veterans Jayson Browder and Manuel Aguilar describe how the VAP has provided them specialized training and preparation for private sector employment. Browder and Aguilar, both seniors at Fordham, focus specifically on the educational components of the program and the academic and professional benefits it provides.
