Today, we’re getting to know Luke Weichbrod, associate director of the Master of Science in Finance Program:
What is your role at Georgetown? How long have you been working here?
I’m the associate director for the Master of Science in Finance (MSF) Program. I have been working with the MSF program for two years, and I have been with the University for four-and-a-half years. Prior to working with MSF I worked at the Georgetown University Law Center in the finance department.
What do you enjoy most about working in executive education?
My time in executive education has provided me the opportunity to get to know some of the most fascinating people that I have ever met. Due to the nature of the MSF program, we have students from all over the country who have a wide range of backgrounds both academically and professionally. It is especially rewarding to get to know each of them.
What’s something that’s on your personal “bucket list?”
I love to travel and I would like to explore Alaska and Australia some time soon.
What book(s) are you currently reading?
I just finished reading Trevor Noah’s book, Born a Crime. He has a compelling story about his childhood under apartheid. He does a great job of mixing in humor with the challenges that he faced and I highly recommend the book. It was especially interesting to learn about his point of view given my annual travel to South Africa for the MSF global residencies.
