Clubs and Guest Speakers

Financial Management Association (FMA)

The Financial Management Association (FMA) seeks to provide a forum in which students can learn about and discuss issues surrounding the financing of businesses around the world. The FMA draws upon knowledge found in its members, the Simon faculty, industry speakers, and the student body in general to initiate and facilitate stimulating discussions on some of the financial trends and occurrences in the corporate world. Special consideration is given to how these issues pertain to investment banking, corporate finance, securities analysis, and individual investing. The investment side of the club seeks to enhance our members' understanding of the investment industry and assist those wishing to pursue a career in the areas of corporate finance and the capital markets: investment management and research, sales and trading, research and private banking.

The FMA schedules review sessions to help students prepare for the Level I and Level II CFA exams.
