After four busy years at Seton Hall University, Andrew Hustick graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Stillman School of Business and is beginning a career with BlackRock Asset Management, the largest asset management group in the world, managing 6.3 trillion in assets globally.
Upon committing to Seton Hall, Andrew was accepted into the prestigious Gerald P. Buccino '63 Center for Leadership Development. The Buccino Center, named after nationally recognized pioneer of "turnaround management" and Seton Hall alumnus Gerald P. Buccino, is committed to develop great future leaders and enable its members to successfully achieve their fullest potential in both their personal and professional lives. The center has been recognized as the top leadership program nationally for four years in a row. Upon acceptance, Hustick also became a recipient of the selective Buccino Scholarship. As a recipient of this four-year academic scholarship, Hustick has received financial aid and one-on-one mentoring from Buccino throughout his college career.
Andrew credits much of his success to the mentoring he received through the Buccino Center, specifically from Michael Reuter and Gerald Buccino.
"Mike helped me to build a professional and balanced demeanor by teaching me interpersonal skills that are heavily sought after in business professionals," said Hustick. "Dr. Buccino provided me with the exposure to several business fields and helped guide me to where I was most interested. I would not be where I am today without the guidance and support of those two."
In addition to graduating with the highest honors, Hustick secured multiple competitive internships with national wealth management companies including Morgan Stanley and his new employer, BlackRock Asset Management. Andrew also received the Wall Street Journal Award, an annual award that the finance department grants to the finance major who achieves the second highest GPA.
Andrew is a testament to the effectiveness and value of both the Stillman School of Business and the Gerald P. Buccino '63 Center for Leadership Development. The scholar is one of many who best exemplify "What Great Minds Can Do" at Seton Hall.
