From Arts and Letters to International Finance

As an undergraduate economics major in the College of Arts and Letters, Bill Kennedy ’90 took an Asian history class to fulfill one of his academic requirements. That class, he says, is part of the reason he is now a top portfolio manager at Fidelity Investments in London.
“I fell in love with international business because I’d taken government requirements and then a fascinating Asian history class,” he says. “My professor got me really excited about the opportunities in Asia.
“My career grew right out of my Arts and Letters degree; I became fascinated with things that are now relevant to my career and what I do every day.”
