A University of Notre Dame institute designed to boost finance curriculum and career training opportunities in the Mendoza College of Business has a new managing director. Erin Bellissimo, who previously served as executive director of the Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing at Columbia Business School, will be in charge of strategic priorities, operations and curriculum at the Notre Dame Institute for Global Investing.

Bellissimo is a founding board member and treasurer of Girls Who Invest, a nonprofit that works to increase the number of women in the asset management industry. She most recently served as a consultant to a hedge fund and family office and was also a partner at hedge fund Aravt Global.

Mendoza College of Business Interim Dean Martijn Cremers says "since its launch just three years ago, NDIGI has developed numerous innovative and effective programs, especially for undergraduate students. As she has already been an integral part of the Institute's efforts from the beginning as an outside partner, Erin understands our mission and vision. I'm delighted that she is now joining as the new managing director."
