Program Design

The 2015 Finance Academy will take place June 8-25, 2015. Participants will work in a team of four to five students alongside a finance executive. Students will be randomly assigned to companies and will communicate weekly with executives to design and execute their corporate project. In addition, there will be a coach assigned to each team to assist with style and presentation of their projects. SFI coaches will also meet face to face on a weekly basis during June. Students will attend daily industry and professional development workshops, have opportunity to interact with industry experts through round table, open forum discussions and company visits.  Competition day will include final project presentations to be judged by a panel of finance professionals in the industry and senior faculty of the School of Management. Teams will be awarded prizes based upon a final ranking of the quality of the analyses and presentations.
