Last fall, TFN hosted the 4th Annual Finance Career Forum on the Medford campus. Formerly known as the Wall Street Crash Course, this year’s forum featured 37 alumni volunteers who ventured back to the Hill to lend their professional expertise to more than 150 student participants. Alumni panelists covered topics that ranged from intro to finance and interviewing to more in-depth discussions about the capital markets lifecycle, mergers and acquisitions, and entrepreneurship, among others. Attendees also participated in a new programmatic activity called “Speed Learning,” which featured three 20-minute sessions on a variety of topics, including: M&A/Capital Raising, the Life of an I-Banking Analyst, Portfolio Management, Buy Side vs. Sell Side and Global Asset Research.

President Anthony Monaco kicked off the weekend with a celebration dinner on Friday evening in the Coolidge Room of Ballou Hall to welcome student leaders and alumni volunteers. Tufts Trustee, Arts and Sciences Advisor and member of the TFN Advisory Committee Jeff Moslow, A86, A16P, also offered remarks to the group, thanking participants and highlighting the important role this annual event plays in the education of Tufts students.

Since the event, TFN has conducted a survey of student participants, who continue to rate the program as an important and engaging experience. To view pictures of this year’s gathering, please click here.
