McIntire’s annual Careers in Finance Conference is designed to help UVA students understand the wide variety of financial career opportunities available and to discover which area is of special interest to them.
Featuring presentations by industry executives with expertise across the financial spectrum, a panel of young professionals giving their perspectives from the workplace, and extensive networking opportunities, this popular conference has quickly become an established fall forum.
McIntire Finance faculty will offer a useful video primer to help students prepare for the conference on finance, demystifying and defining various financial terms and exploring the job possibilities in the world of finance. The conference features presentations by senior executives from a select group of corporate sponsors who each speak on a designated topic, such as:
- Private wealth management
- Independent financial advisory
- Asset and investment management
- Private equity
- Markets and fintech
- Large-scale investment banking: advising, underwriting, and financing
This year's conference will take place Nov. 14. The agenda will be posted as the day gets closer. You will be able to register for the conference on the first day of classes.
“The Careers in Finance Conference showed me the different options that were available to students interested in finance and provided an opportunity to ask questions. Before attending the seminar, I wasn't familiar with private banking or wealth management. The seminar opened my eyes to these areas, introduced me to people in the industry, and helped set me on the path to securing an internship this past summer, and then a full-time offer with JP Morgan Private Bank in San Francisco upon graduation.” – Ryan Whitney (McIntire '14)
