Finding a Future in Finance

Klaudia Kyjovska ’22

Hailing from Slovakia, Klaudia Kyjovska ’22 came to Whitman College with a world of possibilities ahead of her. Following a growing curiosity about all things finance, Kyjovska found opportunities on and off campus to explore economics and investing. Today, she works alongside a number of other Whitties as an analyst at Trilogy Search Partners, where her primary focus involves providing guidance to entrepreneurs on potential acquisitions to evolve and advance their businesses.

Whitman did a great job in providing a holistic experience through academics, athletics, student-led organizations and professional opportunities … helping me transition into the world after college.
