Miranda Nimmer will earn her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in May. She holds a 3.8 GPA and has been on the Dean’s List every semester. She has participated in myriad activities and organizations—leadership is in her blood. Co-op Coordinator Kelly Harrington says, “[Miranda] possesses a rare desire, or rather a need, to serve in difference-making roles across her academic and extracurricular pursuits. She distinguishes herself through her dedicated work, ceaseless energy, and passion for community.”
Miranda has held several positions—currently co-president of Women in Finance. She has been co-director of the research team of the Private Equity and Venture Capital Club, president of Chi Omega sorority, host of WRBB Radio’s “ya like jazz?” program, a volunteer teaching assistant, a tutor, a university tour guide and more. Her engagement in philanthropy and volunteerism has extended to Relay for Life, Make-A-Wish, Cradles to Crayons, the Pilgrim Church, and Invest in Girls.
Co-op experiences are important to Northeastern students, and Miranda has completed three. At Citi in New York, she served as an equity capital markets summer analyst on the syndicate desk. She was part of the direct credit lending team for First Eagle Alternative Credit in Boston. At Boston Consulting Group, she participated in the global business intelligence and financial reporting co-op.
With so many impressive achievements, one might think it would be difficult to choose the most significant. Miranda says it was “navigating both the pandemic and the nationwide social justice reckoning over the course of 2020 in my role as president of my sorority, Chi Omega.” She has been involved in Chi Omega since her freshman year, first listening and observing, then serving as treasurer. “There were many things I accomplished … including creating a website, book club, and leadership workshops. What makes this experience so significant to me is the potential of lasting impact to evolve the existing values into actions that are demanded by our future: inclusion, equity, and critical reflection.”
“She is, in a word, magnetic,” Kelly Harrington says. “She attracts the best people and inspires them, through her good deeds and love for healthy competition, to work harder and to do good.”
After graduation, Miranda will move to New York City to begin working with Citi in their equity capital markets group.
