Sam's goal is to keep providing high finance opportunities to students. He aspires to "redefine Wall Street" by gearing it towards millennials.
His advice to current and future students is to utilize mentors, alumni, and the school. According to Sam, "This is your only time. Take advantage of your resources and time." He encourages students to share crazy ideas and to ask for help.
