Tim Kluska, a 2018 Finance graduate, was recently honored with a Penn State World Campus Outstanding Alumni Award. After graduating, Kluska worked for five years with the investment firm Vanguard.

He said the knowledge he gained from the finance bachelor’s degree program, taught by the faculty of Penn State Behrend, is directly responsible for his career trajectory.

“Eric Robbins and Dr. Greg Filbeck were huge parts of my success, and the Penn State curriculum, which was rigorous and challenging, prepared me for Vanguard and the CFA charter,” Kluska said. “Because of that, now I’m at Harvard Business School.”

Kluska completed his studies while serving active duty in the Marine Corps.
