Evening MBA, 2017

Keith Kellum

Vice President, Senior Analyst, BNY Mellon Wealth Management


For Keith Kellum, who also considered law school, Goizueta Business School is a choice that’s already paying off. Three-quarters of the way through his degree, he received a promotion.

“I’ve always been a numbers guy,” he says, “and with business school I could get a sense of how to run an organization and further investment analysis for clients.”

First as a student in Klaas Baks and Mark Bell’s Frontiers and Illiquidity in Alternative Investments class, and now as a teaching assistant, he’s learned how to break down individual portfolios and discern what the bare requirements are for any commodity — timber, alternative energy, artwork, wine, or antique furniture — to be considered an investment.

Like many before him, Keith has found immediate return on his Goizueta degree.
