GSM Finance Association
Enhancing the value of the GSM student experience by enriching student’s financial education.
The Finance Association provides a framework for incorporating finance topics into the GSM, networking with alumni and coordinating extracurricular events.
The GSM Finance Association aims to spread awareness of financial literacy and related finance topics to the GSM student body and staff. Our goal is to partner with alumni, faculty, subject matter experts, and other student organizations to provide the tools and resources needed to be influential leaders and decision-makers. In addition, we plan to coordinate extracurricular activities that enhance student knowledge across various financial topics. A hands-on educational approach will allow students to discuss, interact with finance professionals, and learn about investing from a long-term perspective.
