Chair perspectives
Job market strategy
A characteristic of the Department of Finance, Insurance and Law curriculum in
finance and in insurance is that undergraduates receive the hands-on attention often
reserved for M.B.A. students at other institutions. While the attention helps make
our graduates exceedingly well-educated, the challenging job market is at its worst
since WWII. Employment prospects in 2011 are markedly different from the prospects three years ago and will
be slow to turn around. This leads me to offer several
reminders on being resourceful and resilient after leaving
Illinois State.
A strong network of professional colleagues informed about your job search (including prior faculty
members) is important. Estimates are that 70 percent of
corporate hiring is done by company referrals. Network
development should start early with an internship experience, if possible. An internship helps a graduate know what kind of job to look
for, as well as interacting with the right kind of contacts. A network of those only
a few years ahead in their careers may be more effective than a network of mature
executives. Finally, job-hopping does not strengthen the contacts that help ensure
the next job seeks you out and not vice versa.
According to a nationwide survey of graduating seniors (National Association of
Colleges and Employers) in 2010, more than 90 percent report having an account at
a social networking website, such as Facebook or LinkedIn. Online technologies are
fine job search tools but talking to people on the phone or face-to-face reveals the
whole, professional package—communication skills and technical skills. Online technologies allow you to prospect for jobs even when no known openings are posted. By
being focused on a specific industry, the opportunity to join professional associations
with online systems for job searching could also be useful.
At graduation the last two years with a finance and/or insurance major, nearly
50 percent of ISU seniors had accepted a full-time job, adjusted for those not seeking
employment, according to internal College of Business surveys. The rate is almost twice
the national average (NACE) but well below our 78 percent in 2007. Starting salaries of
$48,400 on average in 2011 for Finance and Insurance majors are slightly above 2007
levels. Our graduates expect hard work, display no sense of privilege, hold knowledge
in esteem, and believe integrity is not a risk, which are all solid Midwest values. Redbirds are determined to succeed as professionals even in today’s marketplace.
Warm regards,
Gary Koppenhaver, Professor and Chair
your business.

Ahlgrim, associate professor, for outstanding teaching; G.N. Naidu, professor, for
outstanding research; and Edgar Norton, professor, for outstanding service.

Christopher Tamm comes to the department from the University of Missouri,
Columbia, where he earned the Ph.D. in finance in July 2010. His area of research
interest is in financial contracts, the bankruptcy process, corporate governance,
and real estate. Tamm will teach the capstone undergraduate finance course on
advanced financial theory and practice.
New course blends
theory and practice
The first professional position of many finance and insurance majors deals with
the selection of fixed-income securities held by financial institutions such as commercial banks and insurance companies. To insure graduates are well-prepared,
the department offered a new course this year. Taught by Vladimir Kotomin, 22
students enrolled in Fixed-income Analysis and Portfolio Management.
The course focuses on fixed-income security portfolio management and offers
a hands-on opportunity to link theory and financial practice. Students in the
elective course research fixed-income mutual funds and exchange-traded funds
throughout the semester and decide on the best allocation of a fixed-income
portfolio held by the ISU Foundation and valued at $1,000,000. Performance is
benchmarked against the Barclay’s U.S. Aggregate Bond Market index. Student
recommendations are presented to a governing board comprised of FIL Department Chair Gary Koppenhaver and faculty members Kotomin, Edgar Norton and
Abhishek Varma. An advisory board of fixed-income professionals also has an
opportunity to comment on the fixed-income allocation decisions.
“The Foundation was able to assist FIL in filling a gap in the curriculum,
which enhances the experience the students receive, enhances the overall FIL
program which, in turn, will create students, alumni, and donors who recognize
the value their gifts can bring to the University,” said Eric Burwell, chair of the ISU
Foundation Investment Committee.
According to Robert Rush, member of the ISU Foundation Investment Committee, “This investment management program is the beginning of a neat partnership between the College of Business and the foundation.”
While the Department of Finance, Insurance and Law earns a fee from the ISU
Foundation for managing the portfolio, returns from the capital appreciation of
prices or income from portfolio holdings are retained by the ISU Foundation. The
management fee helps cover expenses associated with the successful delivery of
the course, such as costs incurred for recruiting students to the course, scholarships, awards, summer research support for faculty, professional development,
and analytic tools needed to support decision-making.
“This new course on fixed-income securities, along with the student-managed
equity portfolio course (Educational Investment Fund), is a great example of
how the Department of Finance, Insurance and Law prepares hard-working ISU
students for a professional career. The students take their fiduciary responsibility
seriously, are very competitive, and truly appreciate the opportunity to put financial ideas to work,” said Koppenhaver.

Financial Management
Association update
The Illinois State University student chapter of the Financial Management
Association (FMA) brings finance students into contact with career information
and networking opportunities through on-campus speakers and off-campus field
trips. In the fall 2010 semester, the FMA hosted alums to talk about their careers
in corporate finance (Caterpillar), financial planning (Edward Jones & Co.), grain
merchandizing (ADM), and trust services (COUNTRY Trust Bank). In September
2010 and prior to the fall ISU career fair, a panel of eight students gave advice
and answered questions on the internship search process, workplace expectations, and networking. The fall off-campus trip included U.S. Cellular Field, home
of the Chicago White Sox, and U.S. Trust, the private wealth management arm of
Bank of America.
Four alums employed by Caterpillar visited as guest speakers
this past year, including (from left to right) Matt Eckhoff, Ashley
Street, Erin Staggs, and Jennifer Stokes.

The 2011 spring semester professional program on campus featured perspectives from a human resources manager (COUNTRY Financial), health care finance
(Advocate BroMenn Medical), commercial real estate (Joseph & Camper), and
money management (ISU Financial Aid). The spring trip off campus was to Zurich
North America in Schaumburg. In the morning, senior managers from financial
operations offered insights and advice on a range of financial management, career,
and life planning issues. Following a networking lunch in Schaumburg, cosponsored by the FMA and Illinois State Alumni in Finance group, a panel of experienced graduates and friends of the finance program spoke on career issues.
The FMA expresses heartfelt thanks to all the graduates who help students
by visiting campus, facilitating trips, networking at lunch, and serving on panels.

In spring 2010 the board members conducted mock job interviews with
graduating seniors to help prepare students for an effective job search and provide
immediate career coaching ideas. Sixty-two students participated in the interviews
and the accompanying charts show the results as evaluated by members of the
FIL Advisory Board. The students were evaluated on characteristics of their oral
communication skills such as attitude, appearance, and speech. The results indicate that students rate high in their professional attitude and low in the quality of
their questions during the interview. The results have been shared with the board,
students, and department faculty.
