Roni Yosofov graduated from Baruch College with a BBA degree in finance and investments in December 2010. During his sophomore year, he realized that he wanted a quantitative job in the field of finance. As a result, he decided to attend the Financial Engineering program at Cornell.

He came from a non-quantitative background and had to delay his graduation by one year to take the necessary courses to become an adequate candidate for the program.
For about two years prior to joining Cornell, Roni worked in the tutoring center at Baruch College. As a math tutor, he interacted with tutees from a verity of backgrounds. Roni’s communication and interpersonal skills enabled him adjust himself to address specific needs of every individual tutee. As a result of his assistance, students managed to overcome their mathematical difficulties and enter the business school at Baruch College.
Roni is interested in a career in fixed-income or equity derivatives, where his quantitative and financial skills are critical.
In his spare time, Roni plays and watches poker, soccer and basketball games.
