Maurio Fiore talks his rigorous academic career, plus advice for current students.

Maurio Fiore ‘06 spent all four years of high school at Bishop Guilfoyle. While there, he was involved in a variety of clubs, including Student Council and Chess Club, in addition to playing on the basketball and baseball teams freshman year, and running track the following three years. “I had a good time,” he says. “It was a nice, close-knit community.”

After BG, Maurio and many of his classmates attended Penn State in State College. There, he studied both finance and philosophy, spending a year studying abroad in Spain. Afterwards, he took a year off, working for his family’s construction company. He then found himself pursuing academic excellence once again, getting his MBA from the University of Pittsburgh, and then attending law school at the University of Chicago. While there, Maurio studied under the Nobel prize-winning economist, Eugene Fama, learning the foundations of finance. He went on to graduate with honors, one of his proudest achievements.

Currently, Maurio is working at a law firm in New York City, Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP. The prestigious law firm has been in business for almost 200 years.

Maurio’s advice to current BG students, in light of his own accomplishments, is a challenge: “I would say that they should do something hard. I think the most important advice you can give to a high school student going to college is don’t do something easy. Do something hard, even if you don’t like it. They can turn that hard thing, that hard major, into any career, but they don’t have flexibility when they take the easy stuff.”
