Spotlighted Student: T. Jordan Daniels '10
Economics Major, Jordan Daniels, always remembers being interested in business and economics, very likely as a result of his parents owning and operating a wealth management firm in Wilmington, Delaware.
Raised in Wilmington, Jordan was recruited by Mike Murphy to play lacrosse at Haverford. Playing defense through his junior year, Jordan feels that the relationships that he formed while on the team remain the highlight of his undergraduate experience.
Jordan is now President of Haverford’s Golf Club. He’s also co-chair of the Teaf Business Society, an organization dedicated to planning career events and providing the community with timely business resources.
Haverford has been a good experience for Jordan; the academics have been challenging and the relationships he’s developed, on the lacrosse field and off, have been exceptional. Faculty accessibility and the opportunity to interact so closely with the faculty have made Haverford special.
Curious about moral behavior in the world of business, Jordan found Professor Grabell’s class, Business Ethics, especially fascinating. He also developed an interest in Philosophy after being introduced to the study during his stay at University College London.
As a rising Junior, Jordan was the recipient of a Whitehead Internship and spent his summer working at the Haverford Trust Company in their fixed income department. This experience was particularly rewarding for Jordan as he found himself working closely with the Chief Investment Officer and other senior staff. As a rising Senior, he spent his summer at Barclays Bank in Wilmington, DE where he bridged several departments in an effort to standardize the company’s tone.
Over winter break Jordan will travel to Tanzania to volunteer at an orphanage that was recently founded in the memory of a family friend. He will also spend eight days climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
As a senior, Jordan has designed a thesis that he hopes will disentangle the factors that fuel white people’s exodus from urban centers, a phenomenon often referred to as “white flight”. A general interest in the racial composition and transitioning of neighborhoods led him to explore this topic.
Jordan is currently exploring all post-graduation opportunities. Between his academic workload and interview schedule, this semester has kept Jordan very busy. But he’s confident that his efforts will be rewarded!
