Student OrganizationsQuinnipiac finance students don't rely only on courses, class assignments and required reading to learn. Students create their own ways to enrich their education outside the classroom. Their thinking makes perfect sense: The more you learn and practice, the more successful you'll become; the more fun you have learning, the more you'll enjoy your career. Finance students run three student organizations to put this theory into action.
Financial Management Association
Quinnipiac's Financial Management Association chapter inducts students into the association's honor society and coordinates trips for students to attend the association's annual meeting.
Economics and Finance Club
This club coordinates trips to New York City every semester for students to visit one of the Big Apple's great financial institutions, such as the American Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve, the New York Mercantile Exchange, the New York Stock Exchange and Citigroup's capital markets equity trading floor.
The Economics and Finance Club also invites guest speakers to campus so students can hear about the finance world from working professionals. Past guests have included Brett Amendola '91, agency sales director for Barnum Financial Group, an office of MetLife; Terry Goodwin, former vice president and manager of equity trading at Goldman Sachs Asset Management Corp.; and members of The Hartford Society of Financial Analysts.
Do you want to find out how well you can manage a portfolio without the risk of losing real money with the chance to win real money? Here's your opportunity. The Investment Club coordinates a yearlong competition with cash prizes for students with the highest performing portfolio. Participants receive $500,000 of simulated money to buy and sell stocks, bonds, commodities, options and foreign exchange contracts. The Investment Club also invites guest speakers to campus.
