Program Overview

Standing up

Rachel Moon Finance '16, MBA 18' introduced the Corporate Governance panel during Quinnipiac University's annual Global Asset Management Education (G.A.M.E.) VI Forum March 31, 2016, in New York City

We’ll teach you the comprehensive skills necessary to manage money wisely and pursue a career in corporate, personal finance or the banking industry. You’ll also acquire hands-on experience working in our Terry W. Goodwin ’67 Financial Technology Center, where you can conduct trading simulations, develop financial models and analyze real-time economic data.

And to gain further practical knowledge, you’ll have internship opportunities as well as a chance to participate in the $1.6 million Student Managed Portfolio, an investment portfolio managed exclusively by you and your fellow students.

If you’re interested in exploring extracurricular opportunities related to finance, you can join Quinnipiac’s student Investment Club or the Economics/Finance Club, both of which host speakers, sponsor investment challenges and take field trips that help develop crucial networking and leadership skills.
