Jacob Ashley is a senior who has chosen accounting and finance as his business concentrations. On campus, he is involved in the organizations Real Estate Network Association, Finance Society, and Accounting Society. He centers his involvement mainly on real estate and finance, as he is the officer of both the Finance Society and Real Estate Network Association. In fact, outside of his studies Jacob is a licensed realtor. He also plans to become a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) in his future endeavors. Jacob is one of the many fortunate students who gained an internship at Putnam Investments. On November 8th, 2016, he was able to invite one of his colleagues from Putnam Investments to the Finance Society meeting to speak about their experiences in the business world. As a commuter, Jacob is able to balance an internship, his classes pertaining to both concentrations, and clubs… proving that nothing is impossible! His favorite thing about UMass Lowell he quoted as, “being able to attend and be a part of a growing University less than 15 minutes from my house.” For more information on how to get involved at UMass Lowell, feel free to say hello to Jacob in the hallways!
