Student Experience

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. They also have the opportunity to participate in the Global Portfolio Competition.

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.

In Their Words

Chris Gosselin presents during the GAME Forum

Chris Gosselin ’17, MBA ’18

GAME VIII Forum Oversight Chairman

“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 54 countries, all while staying in the financial capital of the world, New York City, for three days.”

Global Portfolio Competition

With an impressive line-up of industry experts ready to share their knowledge in asset management, we were looking forward to hosting our annual GAME Forum in New York City on March 26-28, 2020 and saddened when COVID-19 took that opportunity away.
