The Student Experience
From the classroom to the Big Apple
It’s rare for a conference of this size and visibility to be hosted by students.
In the months leading up to the conference, each student organizer has a lot riding on his or her shoulders, from managing a team to communicating with speakers and attendees. Their work puts them in direct contact with presenters, often a “Who’s Who” of financial industry leaders: Abby Joseph Cohen, CFA, of Goldman Sachs, Charles Evans of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Dr. David Kelly, CFA, of J.P. Morgan Funds, and Tom Keene, CFA, of Bloomberg News, among other notables.
Students gain new perspectives not only from speakers, but also from students across the country and from overseas who look at world events through the lens of their own experience. On day one, keynote panels discuss the global markets, corporate governance, global economy and global investment strategy. Day two includes a variety of breakout discussion panels, workshops and keynote perspectives. The forum concludes on day three with panels discussing career opportunities within the financial services industry. In total, 100 companies and organizations participated by providing 140 keynote speakers, panelists, workshop hosts and judges.
“Nowhere else can someone close the stock market, meet with chief investment officers of top investment firms, compete in a student-managed portfolio competition against international teams, and meet students and professionals from across the U.S. and 41 countries, all while staying in the financial capital of the world, New York City, for three days.”Chris Gosselin '17, MBA '18G.A.M.E.
