Drawing upon more than 20 years of investment management experience, Scott Bushley serves as a partner responsible for finances and operations at the Boston, Massachusetts-based hedge fund Granite Point Capital. Earlier in his career, while working as an analyst at Atlantic Trust, Scott Bushley completed an MBA in finance at Boston College’s Carroll School of Management.

In line with Boston College’s Jesuit heritage, students at its Carroll School of Management are required to give back to the community through volunteering at nonprofits, mentoring young people, or by other means. During the 2017–2018 academic year, more than 900 graduate students contributed in excess of 6,300 hours of volunteer service. This was achieved, in part, through the school’s eight student-run clubs and organizations.

One of those clubs is Net Impact. Through this organization, students glean valuable insights as well as experience social entrepreneurship and corporate citizenship through job fairs and conferences. As part of the club’s community service efforts, students are paired with nonprofit organizations to conduct pro bono consulting work while gaining practical experience.

Another club is Invest ‘N Kids. This weekly tutoring program pairs Carroll students with young people from local middle schools.

Other groups include Graduate Women in Business and Stand Out at Carroll, the latter of which serves the school’s LGBTQ community.

The Carolyn A. and Peter S. Lynch Leadership Academy

Responsible for overseeing finance and business operations at Granite Point Capital, Scott Bushley has been a partner at the Boston firm since September 2018, prior to which he gained 20 years of relevant experience with multiple firms. While working at Atlantic Trust, Scott Bushley completed an MBA in finance at the Boston College Carroll Graduate School of Management.

Emphasizing real-world experience, the Carroll Graduate School of Management has several research centers at which students can network and engage in discussion with prominent thinkers and work together to address important social issues. One of these centers is the Carolyn A. and Peter S. Lynch Leadership Academy (LLA).

In partnership with the Lynch School of Education, the LLA was established for the purpose of improving education outcomes by developing a sustainable network of successful leaders. LLA members include principals and other educational leaders from schools in Boston and gateway cities throughout Massachusetts. Through fellowships for aspiring and sitting principals in addition to alumni coaching, the Academy seeks to disrupt inequity and increase opportunities for students, particularly those in underserved regions.

The LLA was founded in 2010 following the donation of a multi-year grant from the Lynch Foundation. It has since had 221 Fellows from 124 schools and impacted in excess of 90,000 students.
