Graduate Certificate in Public Financial Management
Analyst, Public Financial Management
Alex Tomczuk is currently an Analyst for Public Financial Management (PFM). Alex joined PFM’s 2019 Summer Analyst Pool where he trained for ten weeks learning about fixed income markets, bond math, and received hands-on training in DBC Finance and Microsoft Excel. Currently, Alex is a fiduciary for local and state governments issuing bonds to finance capital projects. In his position, Alex helps reduce borrowing costs for issuers, structure their debt, and ensure that issuers comply with all local, state, and federal regulations. Alex loves the work he does because he enjoys seeing his work translate into projects that benefit communities across the United States.
Prior to joining UConn’s Master of Public Policy (MPP) program, Alex attended Central Connecticut State University where he earned a bachelor’s in Economics. In August 2017, Alex joined the MPP program and immediately started to reap the benefits with attending a top-ranked public finance curriculum. The knowledge he gained in the classroom was strengthened by an internship in UConn’s Office of Budget and Planning, which prepared him to conduct valid statistical and financial analysis in his position with PFM.
Currently, Alex lives in Minneapolis, but intends to come back to the east coast after completing his two year rotation in PFM’s Minneapolis office. In his free time, Alex enjoys playing board and card games, hiking, biking, and traveling.
