FAU Finance Professional Speaker Series

Sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the FAU College of Business

Florida Atlantic University’s College of Business received a sponsorship from JPMorgan Chase’s Women on the Move (WOTM) to create programs and opportunities for finance majors that are expected to attract a diverse group of students and prepare students from many backgrounds to become successful professionals in the finance industry. JPMorgan Chase will serve as the inaugural Financial Services Sponsor of the Women in Finance program for the College of Business. The program is open to all students and focuses on educating and training finance professionals.

With this support, FAU also will establish a student recruitment program for the finance major. In addition, FAU will begin development of a student-managed investment program that gives them real-world experience managing an investment portfolio. The gift will enable the college to begin teaching investment classes and develop a minor for finance majors focused on managed investments.

The 3-part Professional Speaker Series offers valuable insight into the finance industry, with speakers sharing their experiences and knowledge about various financial roles, challenges, and opportunities. Speakers will provide tips and strategies for launching your career and share how the financial industry is changing. The presentations will be followed by a networking session, where students can engage in discussions that extend beyond the classroom. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from professionals who have navigated their careers in finance and gain a better understanding of the industry.
