Peter Greenberg graduated from Cornell University in 2012 with a B.S. in Engineering Physics, a highly quantitative field that develops tools and methods to apply high-level physics and mathematics to model complex mechanical, electrical, and optical systems. Also interested in business, he supplemented his more technical studies with a minor in Applied Economics and Management, the Business minor for engineers. Peter was recognized as a Cornell University Global Fellow for his international experience, and is a recipient of the Lester B. Knight Scholarship, which recognizes a top student and leader in the engineering school who has also developed a strong foundation in business.
Peter gained experience in both finance and engineering through several internships. This previous summer, he helped develop corporate profitability and default models for global prospects for the Risk Management department at American Express. Previously, Peter worked in simulation and testing for ballistic missile defense at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab.
Peter chose Cornell's Operations Research program because of its nationally-recognized combination of quantitative analysis, business strategy, and goal-oriented projects. He hopes to continue his quantitative work in the financial services industry.
