Finance Department Fund
Ranked #1 in the Northwest, the undergraduate Finance Department in the Albers School is known for setting the technical and practical standard in financial education. Through excellent faculty, a strong curriculum and unique opportunities outside of the classroom, students learn the analytical skills, critical thinking and successful habits they need to be successful ethical leaders in a variety of roles in the financial industry.
Gifts to this fund provide support for activities and programs that develop and enhance the finance skills students learn in the classroom. Students participate in programs such as the Redhawk Fund, the CFA Investment Research Challenge, the CFA Ethics Challenge, the Investment Club, or the ACG Cup NW, all of which provide meaningful, hands-on experiences for our students to help them succeed in their chosen profession.
In addition, all students have access to the Bloomberg Terminal, which allows them to have real world experience in understanding the stock market and get real-time data about all aspects of the world of finance. Both undergraduate and graduate students who are seeking roles in the financial industry benefit from gifts to this fund.
