Our department works closely with the Porter Family Professional Development Center to help students find both internships and employment after graduation. Through the Reed Finance Center, Center for Financial Literacy, and student organizations like the Financial Management Association, Real Estate Club, Elon Blockchain, and Women in Finance, we offer career panels, networking opportunities and professional development events throughout the academic year. Our participation in Envestnet introduces students to opportunities in the wealth management field, while our partnerships with the CFA Institute give students experience in asset management. All of our majors are exposed to leading industry technology, such as Bloomberg and Factset, in their courses.
Finance majors are required to complete at least one internship for academic credit through BUS 3985. Examples of internships students have completed include product development for JP Morgan Chase, business advisory for EY, operations analysis for Credit Suisse, financial analysis for Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, client solutions for FactSet, and consumer lending for Wells Fargo.
