CEO of Capstone Affluent Strategies located in East Amherst, New York, Darin Pastor has over two decades of executive experience in the financial sector. Earning his undergraduate degree from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Darin Pastor is part of a proud network of alumni to graduate from this honored institution, thrilled to feature one of the nations oldest cooperative education programs.
While Drexel University was originally established in 1891, the cornerstone of the institution was to be the cooperative education program, which was started in 1919. The first of its kind, it is now the pride of the University, allowing students to alternate between full-time study and full-time employment. The merit of this method of study is the unparalleled work experience students gain when compared to typical college graduates. Certain co-op programs are paid, and those graduating from this program at Drexel are usually hired at a higher salary level.
Drexel’s co-op program is also unique in it’s international programs, allowing students to live and work abroad, from Brazil and China to India and Japan. This adds benefits such as improved foreign language skills, a better understanding of other cultures, and international business experience.
