Semester Trips

Each semester, Finance Academy members are strongly encouraged to participate in a short trip to various locations to be determined by the director. Members are exposed to various companies and professionals representing hedge funds, mutual funds, corporate finance, risk management, and others in the field of finance.

Previous trips have given students opportunities to hear stock pitches from experienced fund managers, research from financial analysts, insight from experienced professionals such as Sam Zell and Hank Paulson, and an opportunity to participate in the Invest for Kids conference held annually in Chicago.

Often, students return from the trips with increased exposure to the industry, an increase in their professional network, and some return with internship or job opportunities.
