There are changes to this club page that are still pending approval from the Office of Student Affairs.


We are a welcoming, diverse, and open student group promoting a rigorous and quantitative understanding of and engagement with financial markets. We offer training workshops and networking opportunities and provide a simulated environment for trading.

Members of our Market Research, Strategy Research, and Graduate Student advanced teams deepen their skills while nurturing and broadening the talents of our incoming Development Team members, such that we have a continuous and robust pipeline of talent.

Our Development Team application is open in September and our Advanced Team application is open during September and January.
