Finance Club

A Top-Notch Business School Demands a Top-Notch Finance Club!


The Finance Club is an active organization where students concentrating in finance are able to build a social network with fellow students and industry professionals. The club aims at enhancing the knowledge of its members through events like speaker series, investment games and career development workshops. However, our ultimate objective is to provide the members with an opportunity to develop into finance executive candidates—executives that no firm can afford to reject!
