While all students share an interest in finance, the team is a mix of Arts & Sciences and Engineering students, and we are always looking for a diverse team with varied viewpoints.
About the Process
Applications are accepted mid-February and consist of a resume, cover letter and transcript. Submissions are then screened and followed by interviews with the team's executive members and faculty advisory committee, which includes Annette Leps of the Center for Leadership Education and Trey Sheain of the Office of Investment Management. Applicants are evaluated based on interest in finance, the markets, and the team as well as technical knowledge and fit. The acceptance rate is approximately 10%.
