"Explore Finance" is a program designed for first and second year students who are interested in learning more about careers in finance, who are interested in learning about investing in the stock market, and/or who generally want to supplement their UO education with skills outside of their major. This program allows students to be involved in the UOIG experience without the commitment of completing a valuation report each term. Ideal candidates want to learn about finance and/or careers in the finance industry in an effort to explore how finance skills can help them attain their future goals. Freshman and Sophomore students from all majors and backgrounds are invited to apply.
Program benefits include:
Learn about careers in finance and get guidance to begin career searching and networking
Explore fundamental equity valuation and portfolio management
Learn what drives value in a company
Participate in weekly UOIG meetings
Participate in meetings with Management and/or other analysts on topics with input from program participants
Students accepted into the program in Fall 2019 will be expected to dedicate the remainder of the Fall and Winter Terms to the program. This includes attending weekly meetings from 8-10am each Friday. Students should also expect to spend at least one hour each week within a discussion-style lesson.
Participation in this group does not guarantee or indicate future membership into the UOIG.
Candidates will submit our online application resembling the membership application. This application includes a cover letter, a resume, and essay sections. The application must be submitted by the deadline posted above, and late applications will not be considered.
For selection, candidates will be judged solely on the merit of the application or may be asked to interview on a date TBD.
