Nathan Daugherty is a second-year student pursuing a major in finance and a minor in quantitative economics. Originally from a small town near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Nate chose Ohio State because of its location and opportunity. An additional factor that drew him to Ohio State was its status as a military-friendly school. Nate, who was part of the U.S. Marine Corps, is utilizing the GI Bill to further his education as a Buckeye.
During his first year at Ohio State, Nate sought opportunities to grow personally and academically. He began to explore investment banking as a potential career interest while engaging with various organizations outside the classroom. He is currently part of the Major Lawrence Miller Military Community Advocate Program, an initiative that connects fellow student veterans to resources and experiences that ensure academic and professional success in their college environment. Nate is also an ambassador with Service2School where he helps transitioning military members navigate their pursuit for higher education.
Recently, Nate was involved in the Investment Banking Program at Ohio State which introduces undergraduate students to investment banking and prepares them for admission into the Fisher Futures Program and a career in the investment banking industry. Currently, Nate is preparing to interview for Fisher Futures in preparation to compete for a summer internship and career opportunities in the investment banking industry. He is also exploring getting involved with the Buckeye Capital Investors student organization. In addition to guiding student veterans, he is also a member of the Theta Delta chapter of Beta Theta Pi and is very eager to step into his new role as Chapter President.
When asked why he chose military service, Nate says the military not only provided him with the resources to pursue college, but it instilled in him the discipline and values he felt were missing from his development as a young adult. He is very eager to share his experiences to enhance the Fisher community.
In addition to jump-starting his career in finance and working in investment banking, Nate is looking forward to helping active-duty members successfully transition life after service, a gap that exists for many in the military community.
