Who I am

LinkedInInstagramTwitter

My name is Thomas Stueber and I am a class of 2026 currently pursuing a dual majoring in Finance (15-3) as well as Computer Science, Economics, and Data Science (6-14) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During my time at MIT, I have had the opportunity to expand on my passion for markets through various finance courses in mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and accounting, microeconomic theory, competitive strategy, communicating with data, and statistics, where I have maintained a 4.9/5.0 GPA. My diverse coursework reflects my interdisciplinary approach and desire to gain a comprehensive understanding of both finance and economics.

Beyond my academic pursuits, I actively engage in various activities and organizations on campus. As a part of the NCAA Division III MIT Football team, I am continuing to grow and showcase my dedication to sportsmanship and teamwork. As a quarterback, I have learned the importance of remaining calm under pressure and leading those around me. I also contribute to MIT Brass Rat Investments Student Fund, a long/short equity fund ran and managed by MIT students. I have had the opportunity to expend my skill set in financial modeling, research, and persuasive communication through this experience. 

Through my involvement in the Phi Beta Epsilon Fraternity, I am developing my commitment to fostering a sense of community and brotherhood among my peers. Through this fraternity, I participate in numerous social and philanthropic initiatives that benefit both the MIT community and the surrounding Boston community. I have also held leadership roles in this fraternity, especially as the house risk manager. In this role, I act as the house conscience and help with mental health, challenges, or anything people in the house need from me. 

Before my enrollment at MIT, I attended Chaminade High School in Mineola, NY. Throughout my high school career, I maintained an unweighted GPA of 4.0/4.0. My SAT score of 1530 further underscores my aptitude in both mathematics and English. At Chaminade High School, I was an active member of the National Honor Society and received the Scholar-Athlete Award in consecutive years for my achievements both on the football field and in the classroom. As a member of the football team, I served as the JV Captain in 2018 and 2019 and later assumed the role of Varsity Captain in 2021. My contributions to the team earned myself accolades such as NYCHSFL Golden Eleven, Suffolk County Golden Eleven, and the Championship Game MVP Award.

Beyond my athletic commitments, I eagerly embrace leadership roles. As the Co-Chairman of the Chaminade Ambassador program, I took on the responsibility of leading tours for prospective students, parents, and donors, showcasing the incredible opportunities and community at Chaminade alongside my twin brother. Additionally, I participated in the Student Athlete Leadership Program, where I mentored middle school students, helping them develop their leadership abilities and navigate obstacles they might face in their lives. 

Outside of my academic and leadership commitments, I am passionate about serving my community. As the Co-founder and Chairman of Sacks for Soldiers, a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, I work alongside my twin brother, Matthew, to organize drives and raise comfort items requested by soldiers deployed overseas. Our efforts have resulted in over $50,000 worth of items being sent directly to soldiers. Through running this project, I was honored with the Nassau County District Attorney SHIELD Award, the New York State Senate Youth Leadership Award, and the Good Deeds Award for Long Island Teenagers. 

Through my leadership experiences, I have developed strong skills in leadership, communication, and mentorship skills, as well as fostering personal growth and a desire to make a positive impact on those around me. Most importantly, I have learned the values of teamwork, and the profound impact that even small acts of kindness can have.

With a strong skill set that includes proficiency in Bloomberg Terminal, corporate accounting, critical thinking, and Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel, I am well-equipped to excel in the fields of finance and computer science. Moreover, my creative writing abilities add depth and versatility to my skill set.

Outside of academics, I enjoy pursuing my interests in golf, running a football prep business, buying and selling football cards, skimboarding, and surfing.

With my unwavering dedication to academic excellence, leadership, community service, and aptitude to put myself out of my own comfort zone, I hope to make significant contributions to the field of financial services.
