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.
