Carolina Finance & Investment Association

Our Mission

The Carolina Finance & Investment Association (CFIA) is a student-driven organization that works in conjunction with faculty and alumni to provide all the resources necessary for students to achieve their goals of working in top financial positions.  The CFIA features regular guest speakers, trips, educational seminars, resume workshops, interview training, trading competitions, community outreach, social events, and a mock fund.  It's a great way for students interested in finance to accelerate and deepen their understanding of the financial world.  Everyone is welcome, and the sooner you join, the more benefit you can receive. 

Who Should Join CFIA?

The CFIA is open to all University of South Carolina students.  CFIA is an obvious choice for finance majors, but anyone with an interest in deepening their knowledge of the financial world is welcome. 

How Can You Join?

For information on how to join CFIA, contact the current CFIA President Katrina Escario  at or go to the Carolina Finance & Investment Association website.

The CFIA would like to thank AgFirst Bank and Fluor Corporation for their continued support.
