CFS Seminar Series

The Center for Financial Studies hosts two lecture series that bring to campus distinguished speakers from academia and business to share their research and views with RPI students and faculty.


Jerome S. Reinert, ’56 Visiting Executive Series

This lecture series is underwritten by donations from Rensselaer alumnus Jerome "Jerry" Reinert '56.
Mr. Reinert received his bachelor's degree in management from Rensselaer in 1956 and later earned an MBA from New York University in 1958. He is president of the Class of 1956 and has been an active volunteer over many years. Mr. Reinert has been honored for his Rensselaer service with the Distinguished Service Award, the Demers Medal, and the Alumni Fellows Award. In addition to the Jerome S. Reinert '56 Visiting Executive Series, Mr. Reinert has also helped to fund the Reinert-Radar Fellowship in Financial Technology which supports two Rensselaer MBA students and a Patroon Scholar through the Rensselaer Annual Fund.
