When Jack Luba arrived at the University of South Florida, he had been discharged from the Singapore Armed Forces merely 10 days prior. In his post-military life, he has relentlessly chased after every academic and professional opportunity he’s been presented.
Luba is on track to graduate in 2023 with dual bachelor’s degrees — one in finance and one in world languages and cultures, with a concentration in Chinese. Luba said his diverse background has fostered a fascination with global businesses and markets. He grew up in six different countries spanning multiple continents.
Luba is the president of Delta Sigma Pi, a co-ed professional business fraternity of more than 70 members at USF. He says through conversations with older brothers at Delta Sigma Pi, he became acquainted with prestigious careers in finance during freshman year. He relied on his brothers to help prepare for rigorous interviews and formulate a plan to break into investment banking. Inspired by their help, he created a system of mentorship within the fraternity.
“My brothers were instrumental in my own professional development, and I wanted to cultivate an environment where all of our brothers could easily find professional mentorship with the fraternity,” he said.
Luba spent last summer as an intern in the risk management group at the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, a Fortune 500 company, and prior to that, interned as a private equity analyst. This summer, Luba will intern for Raymond James as an Investment Banking Summer Analyst in Chicago.
