Julio Novo, Finance

Julio Novo, who came to the United States as a political refugee, graduated high school with an Associate in Arts degree.  Now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in finance from USF, Novo says he is interested in investments, financial analysis, and sustainability.  He is a member of the inaugural cohort for the Business Honors Program, which requires students to conduct research alongside USF business faculty.  His research project will be a study of best practices in global sustainable enterprises.

A disciplined, hardworking student who is passionate about community service, Novo is involved with Habitat for Humanity as well as several programs that serve underprivileged youth around the globe.  He co-founded USF’s Noble Guides student organization, which was created to spur student involvement in group volunteer service projects for the Tampa Bay’s non-profit community.  He also helped create the Youth Enrichment program, which matches underserved elementary school students with high-achieving college students; soon his colleagues in the Business Honors Program will be trained to serve as mentors and tutors to help improve the younger students’ academic performance as well as their outlook on life.

He served as an intern with T. Rowe Price for two semesters in 2011, as a summer analyst in the company’s Global Business Solutions unit and later in the firm’s Retail Asset Management Group.

Novo previously served as an officer for USF’s International Business Board.  He is a member of USF’s tennis club.
