Peter C. Pandolfo, Jr. Founder & Principal Pandolfo Capital, LLC 

In 2008, Peter C. Pandolfo, Jr. founded Pandolfo Capital, LLC., a privately owned investment advisory firm headquartered in Princeton, New Jersey. Pandolfo Capital, LLC. manages private accounts. Mr. Pandolfo’s investment approach is to concentrate in a relatively limited number of investments, because he believes there are a limited number of attractive investments available at any one time. He also believes investing in a relatively limited number of investments about which he has detailed knowledge provides a better alternative then investing in a large number of investments, about which he has less information. Prior to founding Pandolfo Capital, LLC., Mr. Pandolfo worked at Merrill Lynch & Co. for more than 15 years, gaining the extensive experience, training and knowledge that enabled him to launch his own successful venture.

Mr. Pandolfo, the middle of five children, was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and grew up in New Jersey. Upon graduating high school he was chosen by the New Jersey High School Soccer Coaches Association as one of the top 50 New Jersey high school soccer players of 1987. Mr. Pandolfo was the first member of his family to graduate college. He and his family reside in Robbinsville, New Jersey.

BLDP Shadowing Days Application

After being notified of a match, students are responsible for providing personal information to the matched executive (e.g., current resume and cover letter with information on career ambitions). The information on this application is for internal use only, for us to match you as well as possible with and executive from among our alumni database.

BLDP Application

The Fall 2020 Application is now open! 

Priority will be given to applications received by Monday, May 25, 2020. Applications are accepted until all seats are filled.

The seminar application process is our gateway for entry into the program. Upon acceptance into BLDP, students will be emailed their acceptance letter plus a special permission number allowing registration for the BLDP seminar.


Seminar applications are solicited each semester and require

  1. completed application form (submitted online and found elsewhere on this website),
  2. a personal essay, and
  3. two letters of recommendation (one academic; one other).

Rutgers-Camden students are invited to apply to apply for enrollment in the BLDP seminar. All applicants are expected to meet both of the following selection criteria:  Have sophomore standing or above and have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above. First-semester transfer students will be evaluated based on their GPA earned at Rutgers. Students who fail to meet these admission criteria may still be allowed to apply for (and possibly enroll in) the BLDP seminar, but they will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

The director balances evaluations to make final decisions on people accepted for the seminar (up to a maximum of 15-20 each semester).

Students who are admitted to the BDLP are rquired to adopt the BLDP Code of Conduct. A signed contract is required from each student.

Students may count activities toward “leadership units” that were initiated prior to taking a seminar, as long as those activities occur primarily during their enrollment in their academic program.

Application for Admission to BLDP Seminar

Applications For BLDP Seminar will be ongoing until class is filled.
