Finance and Liberal Arts Advocacy Group

A Finance and Liberal Arts Initiative is underway that seeks to integrate the college’s developing programs in finance with its existing strengths in liberal arts education, and we hope to increase our integration with other finance programs. The initiative’s advisory group will support faculty and students with advanced knowledge and skills, experiences, and exclusive opportunities, so students can have a better sense of the mindsets of young financial professionals.
